Dani Beckstrom



Dani is from Eagle, Idaho and has lived in the Boise area for most of her life. She graduated from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah where she was on the cheer squad for 2 years. While getting a degree in Broadcast Journalism, she was a sports reporter and anchor for KBYU. Dani interned at New York 1 in New York City and worked with the theater reporter covering all things Broadway; from the opening of shows to field producing NY1’s nationally broadcasted Live from the Red Carpet to the TONY Awards Special. As much fun as the big city was, Dani is happy to be back home in Idaho and is excited to be a part of the KPVI team!

When Dani isn’t working, watching football, basketball, or running, you can probably find her shopping and trying not to stop into every single frozen yogurt store she comes by.
