Madeline Hunt joined the KYMA team October 2013.
Madeline is a Southern California girl at heart. She was born and raised in Santa Barbara, Calif. and attended the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) where she majored in communication studies and minored in Spanish. During her time at UCLA, she studied abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina where she took Spanish language, literature, and tango classes!
She discovered her love for journalism while interning at E! News. Madeline graduated UCLA Phi Beta Kappa. She is an active alumna of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority.
Prior to joining the KYMA team, Madeline attended Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism in New York City where she received a Master’s in journalism. After graduation, she decided the Big Apple wasn’t for her and moved back to the West Coast.
When Madeline isn’t chasing down a story, you can find her at the gym, the beach, traveling, spending time with friends and family, or eating Mexican food.
Madeline is very excited to join the KYMA family and get involved in the Yuma community.
