Elaine Sheridan

Assignments Manager

A native of Colorado, Elaine Sheridan says she, "loves to tell the stories that are important to the people that live here and love this community like I do!"

With 30 years covering news in Southern Colorado, Elaine knows the history that gives an important perspective to the stories happening now. Wildfires, floods, blizzards, tornadoes, a jetliner crash, mass shootings, Elaine has covered them all.

But the stories that mean the most to her are the ones that have given people with little or no voice a chance to be heard and a chance to make the change that makes this community she loves just a little better.

Elaine studied Mass Communications at Colorado State University and started her career in radio working at local radio stations and the Business Radio Network.

Elaine started at News 5, then Eyewitness News, in 1992 and has been a director, producer, and in 2000 became the Assignment Manager.

A member of Investigative Reporters and Editors, this work is a big focus for Elaine, who believes investigative journalism is an obligation for all news agencies.

When not at work you can find Elaine at her farm training horses, gardening, and tending to her chickens, in the mountains fishing and camping, or on the road showing her Bernese Mountain Dogs and Collies. Elaine also helps out with the local 4-H clubs with kids working on their horse and dog projects.
