Where are they now?

Courtney Dempsey

Courtney Dempsey '97 (Communication Studies)
Reporter/Anchor, KMAX 31 TV

The next big thing is: Hologram cell phones.

My favorite source for news is: cbssacramento.com and tmz.com (I know, I know).

I’m a fan of: Retro hip-hop.

I am so over: Selfies.

One thing I learned at Sac State is: Getting involved is way better than standing on the sidelines.

When I was at Sac State: I was a communications major and journalism minor. The best class ever, which I believe is no longer available because of budget cuts, was a television production class with Virginia Kidd and Steve Buss. That class in addition to my internship, gave me a solid foundation for this business.

I've worked for Good Day on CW31 for the last 18 years and I've done everything from working on the assignment desk and producing to sitting in live trucks. Currently, I'm an anchor/reporter and I've pinched myself enough times to know I'm not dreaming, but I definitely have my dream job.
