The ski areas may have had a late start to the season this year, but as soon as the slopes
were covered with snow the talented Kylie McCoy traveled to her home state of New
Hampshire to hit the slopes of Gunstock Mountain Resort in Gilford.
You can typically find Kylie in front of the Dirty Water TV cameras toasting the best nightlife and events in the heart of Boston. However, on this crisp January day, we found Kylie geared up and taking to the mountain with both her skis and her snow board. It was the perfect day to hang out with Kylie on the Gunstock Mountain slops to catch some behind the scenes footage of her ski-themed photo shoot. One of our favorite parts of the day was when we had the chance to share a chair lift ride with her to witness the beautiful views of Lake Winnipesaukee from the summit.
This is familiar territory to Kylie. She grew up in New Hampshire and learned to ski at Gunstock Mountain when she was ten years old. Since then she has taken things up a notch and taken up snowboarding. Sports have always been a big part of Kylie’s life. Throughout her high school career she ran track and field. To this day she currently holds some of the course records for cross country in the state of New Hampshire. After high school Kylie accepted an athletic scholarship to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she competed in track and field for the Tar Heels. During her studies at UNC Chapel Hill Kylie found her true passion for broadcast journalism. While in college Kylie was given many opportunities to work in the field of media. She worked as a correspondent for ESPNU, she did sideline reporting for ESPN3 and the Carolina Railhawks, and sports reporting for SB Nation covering the WNBA.
Although she enjoyed all of the incredible experiences that she was getting in North Carolina, after graduating college with a bachelor’s degree in journalism Kylie took off for Colorado to do some work as a sports photographer and model at a high altitude training camp for elite athletes called Team Prep USA. From there she flew out to Los Angeles. After 3 short weeks she quickly realized that she is a New England girl at heart and brought herself back to the east coast. Landing herself in Boston, Kylie has had the drive and determination to create a broadcasting career for herself here. She is now an on air host for Dirty Water TV covering everything from nightlife venues, to different events and attractions, as well as co-hosting Dirty Water Fridays at The Greatest Bar. Kylie loves working with the Dirty Water Crew and says, “It’s like a little family. We all support each other and want to see one another be successful.”
Make sure to watch for more of Kylie this upcoming year where she is hoping to bring more of Dirty Water to New Hampshire and share her love for her home state with the rest of New England.
