Cassie Heykoop joined the news team in March of 2014 and is loving life in the news room.
She graduated from Colorado Mesa University in May with a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications and a concentration in Media Strategies and Applications.
During her four years at CMU Cassie worked for The Criterion newspaper as a writer, Features Editor and News Editor, Horizon Magazine as Editor-in-Chief and was a member of the Society of Professional Journalists.
Throughout her education she interned with Fox 31 in Denver working on the Everyday Show and Colorado’s Own Daybreak morning news. She also worked with CMU’s Marketing Department as a media relations assistant and in her last semester began working for KKCO as an intern.
Cassie was born and raised in Littleton, Colo. with seven siblings that kept her on her toes. She is a lifelong Broncos fan and when she’s not working in the KKCO news room she enjoys painting, hiking, travelling and exploring the Grand Valley with friends.
