Kyla Gardner

Reporter/Producer @gardnerkyla Contact

Kyla Gardner is a general assignment reporter/producer covering mainly breaking news.

She joins DNAinfo.com Chicago after interning for The Chicago Reporter, an investigative magazine.

Kyla studied journalism at Northern Illinois University, where she worked as a reporter and designer for the daily student newspaper. In 2011, her investigation into the school’s late-night “drunk buses” won second place nationwide for collegiate News Story of the Year. Her most popular story, however, was about an angry goose chasing students.

Kyla was born and raised in the western suburbs, but now lives in Bridgeport.

Fun Fact: Although Kyla didn't consider pursuing journalism until she was halfway through college, she wrote, directed and starred in an embarrassing fake news show as an 11-year-old. She will give you $5 if you can find it on YouTube.
