Allison Royal is a multi-skilled journalist (MSJ) at KFMB in San Diego, California.
Allison was born and raised in Los Angeles. She grew up frequenting her mom’s side of the family in Coronado and Point Loma. Some of her earliest memories include winning a stuffed animal at the Fleet Science Center with her grandmother and accidentally ruining a cake at the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club (they forgave her).
Before coming back home to sunny California, Allison was the senior on-air reporter for the NBC News affiliate covering Minnesota, Iowa and South Dakota, where she covered anything and everything.
Allison also spent time interning in the investigative unit at KCBS/KCAL in Los Angeles and at KSBY, the NBC News affiliate covering California’s central coast.
Allison is a proud Cal Poly San Luis Obispo alumna where she earned a Bachelor of Science in broadcast journalism and a double-minor, graduating with cum laude honors. She credits her journalistic success today to her time spent at Mustang News, the on-campus news outlet.
Her fun facts include that Allison and her brother have the same birthday, but in different years - and that she has never had ketchup.
