Krystle Gutierrez joined WGN-TV as a general assignment reporter and fill-in anchor for CLTV in August 2012.
Prior to joining the WGN news team, Krystle was a reporter and fill-in anchor at Fox 4 in Dallas, Texas for nearly 5 years. As part of the “Good Day” morning show, Krystle had the opportunity to cover a wide variety of stories from hard news to features. Some days were spent unraveling the latest details of a criminal investigation while others were spent speeding around Texas Motor Speedway in a NASCAR race car. She also experienced her fair share of severe weather coverage including ice storms, tornadoes, wildfires and floods.
Krystle also worked at KRIS-TV in Corpus Christi, Texas where she was a morning anchor and health reporter. Her compelling story on a South Texas teen’s battle to survive after contracting a deadly form of Staph bacteria was honored by the Texas Medical Association and the Texas Associated Press. Krystle was also recognized for her work on a pre-game college football show called “Aggie Game Day Live” while she worked for KBTX-TV in College Station, Texas. Krystle was part of the first two seasons of the show, which both received Telly Awards for excellence in live broadcasting.
Krystle graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in Agriculture Journalism. She got her start in television news as a studio camera operator for KBTX-TV when she was only a Freshman in college. After a couple of years behind the scenes Krystle finally made her way in front of the camera when she was a Junior in college, serving as the Noon show anchor and co-host of “Aggie Game Day Live.”
When she’s not reporting for WGN-TV, Krystle is busy with her other full-time job of being a wife to Kris and a mommy to their two young children. Although she was born and raised in Texas, she is really enjoying Chicago. Her favorite part about the city so far is the beaches… (and the pizza)
