Allison Crawford

Digital Producer

A proud native of Murray, Kentucky, Allison grew up roaming the forests of west Kentucky and visiting national parks across the country. She graduated in 2014 from Murray State University where she studied Liberal Arts, Television Production, and Spanish. She loves meeting new people, questioning everything, and dancing through the sun and the rain.

Though her heart belongs to Murray, constant travel and exploration are necessary for her survival. If not reporting for WKMS, she can be found calling for owls in the Land Between the Lakes, working to advance environmental sustainability, or going on an adventure. She will never stop dancing and hopes to make a positive impact in this world several endeavors at a time.
