Allie Norton joined the KXLY4 team in January 2014.
She traded California's eternal sunshine for the full, four seasons. Allie comes from Humboldt County where she was a reporter and weekend anchor for KIEM-TV.
Allie grew up in Valley Center, a rural town 50 miles north of San Diego and graduated from Fresno State. Within two weeks of starting college, Allie landed a job with the Fresno State football team filming coaches film for then Head Coach Pat Hill. Allie spent two years with the team filming games and traveling with the team. Allie's first job in journalism was as the online sports reporter with the school's newspaper, The Collegian. That job led Allie to her first job at a news station doing master control and web producing on the weekends at the NBC affiliate KSEE24. During that time she also interned with Congressman Jim Costa and California Assemblyman Henry T. Perea. Allie spent summer vacation back in Southern California working as a tour guide for the San Diego Zoo's Safari Park.
After graduating, Allie made the 14-hour drive north to work at KIEM-TV. She spent just over a year in the Redwood Empire and covered stories like the search for triple homicide suspect Shane Miller, who was recently added to the U.S Marshals 15 Most Wanted Fugitives list.
Allie is excited to live in a place where the leaves change colors. She's looking forward to making snowboarding trips on her days off and checking out the restaurant scene. If you have any suggestions for places Allie should try or have a potential story idea, feel free to email her anytime.
