Clarke is a Southern California girl who knew she had a passion for journalism at a young age. Her earliest memory comes from her childhood when she would run around the house with her Barbie camcorder and create pretend newscasts on a regular basis.
As she grew older, Clarke realized that she wanted to pursue journalism as a career. Her passion for storytelling grew the most during her years at Biola University, La Mirada, California.
Clarke graduated Biola University in May, 2017, with a degree in Journalism Broadcast. She then headed to West Texas to begin her career as a reporter for Big 2 News/FOX24. After 10 months of reporting, Clarke was offered the opportunity to transition into the role of morning Anchor for both KMID and KPEJ. Now you can find Clarke alongside Channing and Chase in the mornings on Good Morning Basin, before she solo anchors the A.M. Live show at 8 a.m.
Outside of work Clarke is a die-hard foodie that loves exploring different restaurants. She has an interest in true crime and loves a good podcast.
Other activities she enjoys (outside of eating) include staying active, volunteering, snuggling with her puppy Chance, going to concerts, petting fuzzy animals, and binge-watching the latest Netflix series.
Clarke can’t live without coffee and swears the best steak is prepared medium rare and is served with a loaded baked potato.
Although she’s still new to West Texas, Clarke is passionate about covering news with integrity and without bias. She’s honored to serve her new home in her new role as Morning Anchor.
