Sasha Loftis joined the Tucson News Now team as a traffic reporter in February 2014. A University of Arizona graduate, she was born and raised in Tucson. She is thrilled to use her vast knowledge of the city to bring you traffic conditions every morning.
She most recently worked as an assignment editor at KGUN 9. There Sasha helped cover multiple breaking news stories, including the tragic Richter child imprisonment case in November of 2013, as well as the multi-vehicle pileup on I-10 that killed three people.
While at the U of A, Sasha was one of 10 students chosen across the country to participate in the Meredith-Cronkite Fellowship. This high-paced, week long program gave her hands-on experience with producing packages and anchoring newscasts on deadline.
While in college, Sasha also interned at KVOA for nearly two years, where she had the chance to shadow and assist reporters, producers and assignment editors with daily news content production.
When she's not in the newsroom, Sasha enjoys riding her two horses, reading and writing literature, spending time with her friends and family and enjoying all the outdoor activities The Old Pueblo has to offer.
