Alumna becomes weekend sports anchorWaxahachie, Texas — October 4, 2012 — Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) alumna Krystle Sonmore was hired as a weekend sports anchor/news reporter for KKCO 11 News in Grand Junction, Colo.

Sonmore reports news during the week and anchors sports on weekends. She can be viewed on weekends during the 5:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. sportscasts. "I love this job," shared Sonmore. "I get to be myself and film games. I feel really blessed to be doing something that I love."

During her time at SAGU, Sonmore prepared for a career in broadcasting through experiences in class, reporting for SAGU Sports Live and participating in student films. "My experience with SAGU Sports Live was crucial and played a huge role in being hired as a weekend sports anchor."

Sonmore directed the SAGU student film "Under the Sun," which will premier this Nov. 13 at Showbiz Cinema in Waxahachie. Sonmore reflects, "I came into the media program not knowing anything about editing, filmwork or script writing. I left as the director of a student film. I even started my own business as a freelance wedding videographer."

Professor Rob Price influenced Sonmore during her time at SAGU. She says, "Price is a fun, relatable and well-respected SAGU professor. His classes are practical and hands-on, and he knows how to make the class and material relative to the real world."

"Krystle's dedication to excellence raised the bar for her peers and our entire department," Price shared. "She demonstrated the ability to take criticism, internalize it, and leverage what she learned to make her next project exceed expectations.

He continued, "I am so proud of her accomplishment in landing a job in Grand Junction, Colorado, as a news reporter and sports anchor. Her skills and poise in front of the camera equal her abilities behind the scenes."

Sonmore appreciates the opportunity for spiritual growth SAGU provided. "While at SAGU, I drew closer to the Lord  and received a Christian-based education that is in line with what I believe." Sonmore especially enjoyed taking Authentic Christianity with Professor Clancy Hayes. She says, "Hayes's class was especially relative to everyday life."

Sonmore, originally from Houston, Texas, graduated from SAGU in April 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in Digital Media. Sonmore first became acquainted with KKCO 11 News as an intern during the summer of 2011. She began reporting for KKCO 11 News in May 2012. She attends Canyon View Vineyard Church in Grand Junction, Colo.
