Haley Harrison has a passion for storytelling.
She is a Texas girl born in Dallas and raised in Parker, Texas.
In June 2018, Haley began her career as a professional journalist in West Texas at KOSA CBS7 News as a reporter. She was promoted to Weekend Anchor/Investigative Reporter in March 2019. Behind the camera, she produces all three weekend shows and occasionally fills-in as a producer on weekdays.
During her time at CBS7, Haley has covered several breaking news stories, political events at the state capital, high-profile murder trials and the mass shootings in both El Paso and Odessa. Although, Haley's knack is for in-depth and investigative journalism. She has chased a local official into an elevator with a mic, uncovered illegal pollution in the oil fields and has helped some Odessans get their orange city water fixed.
Haley is also continuing to learn and develop her career outside the CBS7 newsroom. In May 2019, she was one of 60 international media professionals selected to participate in the Poynter-Koch Media & Journalism Fellowship, which is a year-long program to develop and refine participants’ storytelling skills to accelerate their careers in media.
In May 2018, Haley graduated from Texas Christian University and the Bob Schieffer College of Communication with a degree in Journalism, a certificate in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Political Science.
During her time at TCU, Haley gained experience as a reporter, anchor, producer and editor for TCU News Now, TCU 360 and The 109. In spring 2018, Texas Associated Press and Managing Editors (TAPME) awarded Haley First Place Video (Shorter than 2 Minutes). She was also honored with three TCU Jay & Gail Milner Awards for Visual Story of the Year, Enterprise Reporting and Interactive Story.
While in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Haley interned at KTVT CBS 11 News where she worked closely with the news reporters and investigative team. She also has experience working alongside former Head Investigative Reporter Brett Shipp at ABC’s WFAA Channel 8 News in Dallas.
When Haley isn’t in the newsroom or running around with a camera, she spends her time traveling, working out and trying new recipes. She also enjoys sports and is an athlete at heart after playing indoor and beach volleyball for much of her life, including two years at the Division I level in college.
Haley loves living and working in the West Texas community.
