Taylor Kilgore joined the KKTV Sports team in March of 2016. You can catch her anchoring weeknights at 5:30 &10!
Taylor comes to Colorado after spending nearly three years in Nebraska. There, she was the evening sports anchor at NBC Nebraska. Prior to that, she spent two years in the south soaking up every bit of knowledge from the sport team at News Channel 5 in Nashville, Tennessee. In her time there, she was lucky enough to cover all the sports in town including her brother Logan's team. He was a four-year starting quarterback at Middle Tennessee. He is currently playing professionally for the Edmonton Eskimos.
She was born and raised in Rocklin, California. Sports weren’t just entertainment for her and her family, but a way of life. Seriously, family vacations were traveling the country for basketball tournaments! She grew up playing basketball and competing in Taekwondo. Most people don’t know that she is a second-degree black belt!
Taylor went to Humboldt State University on a full-ride basketball scholarship, where she received a degree in Mass Communications as well as a minor in News Broadcast. She was a four-year starting shooting guard for the championship basketball team where she was named captain as well as a weight lifting All-American. At HSU, she was also able to start her career in television as the co-host for the campus sports show "Humboldt State Tonight."
Taylor and her husband Scott are happy to now call Colorado home. Scott coaches college basketball at Regis University in Denver.
Sports keep her busy, but in her spare time, Taylor also loves to travel, go to concerts, and spend as much time outdoors being active as possible.
