Rachel Hofstra

Rachel is from Spirit Lake, IA.  Her family means everything to her.  “They are my best friends”, she says.  “Almost all of my childhood memories are with my brothers.  We always were outside playing sports and causing trouble”, Rachel adds.

Unlike many people in broadcasting, Rachel didn’t grow up dreaming of being the next Diane Sawyer or David Muir.  “It just happened and now I love it”, she says.  She graduated from UNL from the Journalism and Mass Communications College.  During school, she interned at Channel 8 KLKN-TV.  That led to a full time job as a video editor and now as a photojournalist for Channel 8 Eyewitness News.  “It’s an amazing way to help people and tell their stories.  The good, the bad, their successes and their tragedies.  It’s all amazing and I am honored to help share our community’s stories”. 

If she has any spare time, she likes to spend it with friends and family.  They like to try new and adventurous activities.  They have even tried skydiving.

    Nebraska State Patrol releases dashcam footage of accident

    A close call caught on a state trooper's dashcam. Take a look, a trooper comes up to a bridge on Highway 34 in southwest Nebraska. At the same time, a semi comes the other way. That semi crossed over the center line, poised for a head-on crash, but the trooper, quick thinking, swerved to avoid him. He was still side-swiped, but the trooper suffered only minor injuries. The semi driver went to the hospital. This is the third crash involving a state patrol car in the past week. A...More >>
