As the Executive Producer of KING 5’s first ever race and equity unit, Facing Race, I lead a team that tells important stories about race and justice in the Pacific Northwest. 

I’m a northern California native who came to KING 5 in October 2019 after reporting on-air in San Francisco, Denver and Missoula, Montana.

When I was an undergraduate student at Sarah Lawrence College in New York, I originally hoped to become a writer, but I started considering journalism as a career after spending a life-changing year studying media and literature at Oxford University in England. Later, I earned my master’s degree in Journalism from UC Berkeley.

My most memorable interview was with Barack Obama as he wrapped up the presidential primary race in 2008. I’ve covered a wide range of news from presidential inaugurations to protests and pro-basketball games, and I’ve met and interviewed politicians, authors, actors, celebrities and sports figures from Kamala Harris to Kevin Durant.

In my spare time, I like reading, writing, wine-tasting, traveling, gardening and doing amateur yoga at home where no one can judge me.

If you have a story idea for the Facing Race unit, you can send them to cayers@king5.com or race@king5.com.
