While thousands of people enjoy Kimberly’s company as they began their day,it seems ironic that she considers herself somewhat shy by nature. “No one really believes me when I say I am shy,” Kimberly says with a smile. “But when I get in front of big crowds, I get nervous.” In front of the camera, though, her fears fade. Kimberly shines. Most likely, it is because of her passion for news. “I’ve been at the forefront of huge stories and it has given me an incredible window into the world. I’ve met people at the height of happiness and the depth of despair.”
