Peyton Yager -

Peyton Yager joined the KNWA/FOX 24 team in July 2017. She is a proud Longhorn (Hook ‘em Horns!) but is excited to be in Razorback country.

She graduated from The University of Texas at Austin in May 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and a bachelor’s degree in government. During her time at Texas, she was the political news intern for our Nexstar station, KXAN and the political news intern for Spectrum News.

She also spent time at the state capitol as a legislative intern for Sen. Lois Kolkhorst and interned in Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s press office.

While in college, Yager was a reporter for UT’s student run newscast – Texas Newswatch.

Born and raised in Friendswood, Texas, Yager loves to follow her Houston Rockets, Astros and Texans. She loves her college sports and will be wearing burnt orange every Saturday in the fall. Yager loves the outdoors and enjoying the warm weather any way she can. She's also on the hunt for the best tacos in Northwest Arkansas to remind her of home.

Yager is excited to experience all of what Northwest Arkansas has to offer and to share the stories of people who live here!
