Multi-Media Journalist

Mankato, MN

Holly Bernstein graduated from Arizona State University in May 2019 with Bachelor’s Degrees in broadcast journalism and global studies.

A week after graduation, she packed up her car and took a road trip across the country to move to Mankato.

Friends, colder weather, nature and the chance to do what she loves brought her to Minnesota.

Holly Bernstein is passionate about telling stories that matter to the viewers and is excited to be part of the KEYC News 12 team as a Multi-Media Journalist.

While in school, Holly was a political reporter for her college’s newscast. She also held journalism internships, including one abroad in London, England, for a semester.

Every single day is different. I get to tell different stories every day.

It changed a lot, but I always wanted to do something related to creating, writing, shooting video and editing.

I’d choose the ability to travel anywhere with the snap of my fingers.
