A Voice for the People

Tiffany Lane is an award-winning journalist with experience in local, state, national and international news. Tiffany joined KSNV in Las Vegas as a reporter and fill-in anchor in November 2019. Tiffany’s passion is being able to provide a voice for people who are often unheard and strengthening community through her stories. She likes the rush of breaking news and values the importance of finding different angles to a story.

Tiffany’s love for journalism began in high school when she completed a short documentary on homelessness in Downtown Los Angeles’ infamous Skid Row. During this time, she learned that to solve an issue, people must know it exists in the first place. She knew her mission was to be the person to create awareness for viewers who could help become part of the solution. Tiffany has been following that dream ever since.

In Las Vegas, Tiffany has her own segment called “News 3’s Education Project,” where she investigates the challenges students and teachers face in the nation’s fifth largest school district. Tiffany takes their concerns to those directly in charge, to create positive change for education in her community. Some of those concerns include major staffing shortages causing students to be in oversized classrooms, late buses causing teens to take public buses to school, and teachers being sent to collections because their health insurance is millions behind in claim payments.

Outside of her work with education, Tiffany keeps viewers updated during the pandemic, a time when providing accurate and immediate information is more vital than ever. She also delves into issues of homelessness, immigration and social justice. Tiffany won her second Regional Emmy at Channel 3, for her leading work on a newscast on the Democratic Presidential Debate in Las Vegas ahead of the 2020 election. Tiffany serves as one of the station’s lead political reporters and has had one-on-one interviews with now-president Joe Biden, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, as well as covering campaign events of former president Donald Trump.

Before moving to Nevada, Tiffany worked at KSNW in Wichita, Kansas as the weekend evening anchor and multimedia journalist. While there, Tiffany loved working behind the anchor desk on Saturdays and Sundays, leading the newsroom in decision-making. During the week, she also enjoyed reporting stories that impacted the community. Her time in Wichita allowed her to build on her passion that began her career, by providing an inside look at homelessness, as she participated in the City’s first Homeless for a Day Challenge. She also served as one of the station’s main political reporters, being one of the first to interview the state’s new governor right after the results of her election were announced. Tiffany also covered stories that made nationwide news, including a “swatting” call that led to a local man’s death, and the efforts to find five-year-old Lucas Hernandez, whose body was located months later, after a private investigator found his body in a nearby county.

Before working at KSN, Tiffany was a multimedia journalist and fill-in anchor at KTIV News 4, in Sioux City, Iowa. There, she was able to follow her love for politics covering Iowa’s first-in-the nation caucuses. For a year-and-a-half leading to the 2016 election, Tiffany followed presidential hopefuls around the state, many of whom came to know her on a first name basis. She covered presidential candidates on the campaign trail, including president-elect Donald Trump, former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Marco Rubio, Dr. Ben Carson, Gov. Martin O’Malley, Carly Fiorina, Sen. Rand Paul, Gov. Mike Huckabee, Gov. Bobby Jindal, and Sen. Rick Santorum. She even had exclusive one-on-one interviews with many of the candidates during their stops in Siouxland as they rallied voters.

In Sioux City, Tiffany reported on a variety of topics, such as economic development, crime, agriculture and natural disasters. One of her most memorable reports was on the two-week long, $5.7-billion Beef Products Incorporated case against ABC News, following news reports of their product, “Lean Finely Textured Beef.” For her work, Tiffany received an Associated Press Great Plains award in General Reporting for her in-depth look at police technology and the impact it has had on emergency call responses. Her political coverage led her to win an Emmy for “Daytime Newscast- Blizzard after the Caucus.” Tiffany is also the recipient of an Eric Sevareid Award for reporting on Pilger, Nebraska- “One Year After the Storm.” She has also won multiple Iowa Broadcast News Association honors.

Tiffany began her anchoring career at KTIV, serving as the fill-in anchor for the weekend newscasts, including the Sunday 10 p.m., the station’s most watched show. Along with anchoring the shows, she would also edit and produce them as well.

Prior to KTIV News 4, Tiffany worked at Join the Synergy, an online entertainment outlet in Los Angeles where she was the social media coordinator and reporter. She covered red carpet events for a variety of movies and shows. Tiffany even reported at major awards shows, including the Golden Globes and the Teen Choice Awards. She has interviewed hundreds of celebrities, such as John Legend, Adam Levine, Usher, Harry Styles, Magic Johnson, Keith Urban and Demi Lovato.

Tiffany completed her Master’s Degree at the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. During her time there, she covered immigration and demographics in Chicago and Washington, D.C. and had the opportunity to interview the prime minister of the Tibetan government-in-exile as well as members of the president’s cabinet. Her favorite part of the program was living and working as a resident journalist at a network television station in Cape Town, South Africa covering education, trial and gang stories. Tiffany enterprised a story for eNews Channel Africa that aired in 49 African countries, 16 satellite channels and the United Kingdom on the death of an alleged gang leader killed in one of Cape Town’s most violent neighborhoods.

A Southern California native, Tiffany interned at multiple news stations in the L.A. area including Dateline NBC, KTLA, NBC Nightly News, and NBC LA prior to Medill.

Tiffany received Bachelor of Arts degrees in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science from California State University, Northridge. While in her undergraduate studies, Tiffany worked for the Valley View News, the university television station, as a reporter, anchor, producer and editor. Her sportscast for the school’s radio station, KCSN, was part of a segment that received a Golden Mike Award for “Best Evening Newscast over 15 Minutes.” Tiffany also spent significant time covering medical marijuana for an in-depth investigative piece.

Tiffany prides herself on her multicultural heritage. She has been able to embrace her Iranian roots on her mother’s side, as a fluent speaker of Farsi, and growing up learning the rich culture. And, her father’s Scottish, Irish, German and Dutch background have helped Tiffany learn the importance of diversity and appreciating people of all walks of life.

When she is not out covering stories, Tiffany enjoys being an active member of the community. She loves being a weekly volunteer for Meals on Wheels and is also a member of the Young Professionals of Wichita.
