Whitney Ward is an American investigative reporter, and anchor of KREM 2 News at 4 p.m. as well as co-anchor of KREM 2 News at 5 and 6 p.m.

She proudly attended both Eastern Washington University as well as Washington State University. After spending three years at Eastern, Whitney transferred to WSU for its esteemed Edward R. Murrow Communications program.

After graduating college, she began her career at KFYR, the NBC affiliate in Bismarck, North Dakota. Whitney served as a reporter and weekend anchor for three years, covering politics as well as countless National Guard stories for military operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. Severe weather is known in North Dakota, so it was not uncommon for Whitney to do live shots in temperatures 30-40 degrees below zero!

Her career took her to the CBS affiliate in Youngstown, Ohio, where Whitney served as the main evening anchor at WKBN. Whitney’s work allowed her to cover 2 Presidential elections, numerous tornadoes, as well as countless stories about crime, politics, and business.

Whitney toured the world-famous Handel’s ice cream shop, which led National Geographic to rank it as one of the best in the WORLD!

She then made the decision to return to her home state of Washington to be closer to family as well as friends. Whitney spent 2 years as the main anchor at KEPR-TV in the Tri-Cities. During that time, Whitney was honored by the Society of Professional Journalists with an (Excellence in Journalism) award for Investigative Reporting after helping expose a $1.7 M fraud case in the Franklin County Public Works Department.

Since joining KREM in 2013, Whitney has continued her exemplary work shedding light on mismanagement of government resources, university cover-ups, as well as toxic chemical contamination. Her investigations have helped lead to changes in state policy as well as local government procedures and has also earned multiple journalism honors for her investigative reporting.

In the year 2013, Whitney revealed startling gaps in the Idaho foster care system and her report (Bring D Home) won a regional Edward R. Murrow award for Investigative Reporting.

In 2014, Whitney provided unparalleled coverage after the Carlton Complex wildfire burned hundreds of homes as well as more than a quarter-million acres in Central Washington. Whitney’s multi-part investigation uncovered many instances of state resources standing idle while homes as well as businesses burned to the ground.

In 2015, Whitney again brought unrivaled wildfire coverage when the even bigger Okanogan Complex fire killed 3 firefighters and burned more than half a million acres, much of it in the same areas that had burned just 1 year prior. Whitney’s relentless pursuit of truth after both fires helped bring attention to serious flaws in response protocol, however, Washington lawmakers later enacted new legislation to help prevent catastrophic wildfires as well as protect fire victims.

In the year 2016, she conducted an in-depth investigation of the WSU Bear Center, after learning about the deaths of 2 yearling cubs at the animal research facility. Her eye-opening report (Bear Facts) received a regional Edward R. Murrow award for Investigative Reporting, as well as received a regional Emmy nomination for Investigative Reporting.

In the year 2017, she took on one of her biggest stories yet widespread groundwater contamination at Fairchild Air Force Base in Airway Heights. Whitney uncovered decades of unchecked chemical pollution as well as directly questioned Fairchild’s highest-ranking Base Commander about possible solutions for contamination victims and her lengthy investigation earned a regional Edward R. Murrow award for Investigative Reporting.
