KCOY Central Coast News Reporter
Rachael Laine is happy to call the Central Coast her home.
As someone who is passionate for writing and telling stories, at a young age Rachael discovered it was her dream to become a journalist. With hard work and dedication she knew one day it would come true.
Born and raised in San Diego, she moved to Orange County where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Broadcast Journalism as well as a minor in Public Relations at Chapman University.
Before joining the KCOY team in 2012 as a reporter and producer, Rachael worked as a writer and production assistant for KUSI in San Diego. On her days off, she traveled to Garden Grove where she reported for the city's news station, Garden Grove Channel 3. She also interned for KUSI and for Good Day LA at KTTV FOX 11 in Los Angeles.
When she's not chasing down a story, Rachael enjoys spending time with her family, while exploring all the beautiful sights the Central Coast has to offer.
