Eight-time Emmy award-winning journalist Heather Crawford has called the First Coast home for more than a decade. She joined the First Coast News team in 2012 and anchors the evening news.
From a young age Heather knew she wanted to be a journalist. She got her big break right out of college when she was hired as a morning at WAKA in Montgomery, Alabama. From there she landed a job at WLFL in Raleigh, North Carolina. She also spent several years at WHBQ in Memphis where she was an investigative reporter. Heather moved to the First Coast from Little Rock, Arkansas where she spent six years as an evening anchor at KATV.
Heather grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina and is a Magna Cum Laude graduate of North Carolina State University. She is the recipient of a National Edward R. Murrow Award and numerous regional Murrow awards.
As a working mom, Heather knows what it’s like to juggle a lot and loves helping women find their calling and have hope. She homeschools her two children, leads an international Bible study, and is passionate about telling stories that make a difference. Heather serves on the board of Hugs Across the County, a grassroots organization that helps children in need in St. Johns County.
When Heather isn't on the anchor desk or working on a story, you can find her spending time with her husband and kids. She loves reading the Bible daily, taking her kids on adventures around the First Coast, and spending time at the beach.
