Calyn attended Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa. She reported and anchored for the campus news show, “Cedar Valley Today.” She has been recognized by the Iowa Broadcast News Association and the Upper Midwest Regional Student Television Awards for her reporting and anchoring work. Calyn also interned at KCRG-TV9 News in Cedar Rapids, Iowa for two summers.

When she’s not covering the news, Calyn loves to spend time with family and friends, go boating, exercise, shop, and watch movies.
