Ali Reed

Ali Reed is a 2023 graduate from Minnesota State University, Mankato with a major in Mass Communications. After spending most of her life in Rosemount, Minnesota, she now calls Mankato home as she joined the KEYC team in May 2023 as a Content Producer.

During her time at MSU, Ali was the Sports Editor for the campus newspaper, the MSU Reporter. After such a positive experience at the Reporter and with a strong passion for sharing people’s stories with the world, Ali knew that journalism was the correct route for her.

As she was growing up, Ali always imagined herself being on the news one day. She enjoys reporting stories on all things around the sun, with a soft spot for sports. She played sports for most of her life, and when she wasn’t playing, she was watching. SKOL!

In her free time, Ali likes to spend time with her family and friends. On top of sports, she loves watching shows and movies, playing video games, and singing. She also enjoys eating delicious food and going for morning runs. Feel free to reachout to Ali at
