Bree Steffen joined the Spectrum News 1 SoCal team as a multimedia journalist in September 2021.

Originally from the Midwest, Bree moved to California in 2015 and absolutely loves it. She enjoys the national parks and countless beaches and appreciates the tight-knit community feeling of San Diego.

Bree is a six-time Emmy Award-winning journalist who is excited to join the Spectrum News team because of its commitment to character-driven storytelling. She believes great storytelling can be educational, inspirational and memorable. She loves to learn about the world around her and share what she finds to help her audience live positively.

When Bree isn’t reporting, you might find her hiking or rock climbing. Her favorite movie is “Free Solo,” and she watches it every New Year’s Eve to inspire her to seize the upcoming year. If you pay attention while Bree is reporting, you may even notice her arms tattooed with tributes to Joshua Tree and Yosemite national parks. 

She is a vegan and loves the Rollin Roots food truck in San Diego, and she will tell you the mac n’ cheese balls are life-changing!
