Brittany Kemmerer joined KEYC News 12 in June 2016 after completing her bachelor’s degree in Mass Media at Minnesota State University-Mankato. Gaining her interest in the field, she did an internship with KEYC News 12 in Mankato. Brittany was a member of the Society of Professional Journalists in college and the dance team for one year. She realized her love for storytelling at a young age when she visited the science museum in the Twin Cities, where they had an anchoring desk set up for children.

Born and raised on a farm near a small town in western Wisconsin, Brittany loves to be outdoors fishing, hunting, dirt bike riding, snowmobiling, golfing and camping. She loves traveling and seeing new places as much as she can. She grew up dancing competitively her whole life, but also has a love for watching sports, especially hockey and football.
