Britt is grateful to the Coloradans who have embraced her. Britt joined CBS4 in March 2013. Previously, she reported and anchored at KSAZ in Phoenix. She first reported in her home state of Texas and got her start as a broadcast journalist in college hosting an entertainment news show.
Her reporting has introduced her to wonderful causes and inspiring people in Colorado. She especially loves working at a station which places emphasis on “Covering Colorado” news first which includes sharing stories of people helping others in the community. These stories remind people to be hopeful and represent all the good news that happens in Colorado.

She also hosted the Emmy award winning production that earned CBS4 the 2016 “News Excellence” award. When she was in Arizona she earned an Emmy for a report she put together that shadowed Border Patrol agents during an overnight patrol in the Arizona desert where she interviewed a group of suspected undocumented immigrants the agents encountered.
Britt attended Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas where she double majored in Communication and Spanish. She loves experiencing Colorado’s outdoors, working with kids, country music and spending time with her husband and their black Labrador Retriever, Knox.
