Crystal Haynes, Boston 25 Journalist & News reporter.
At the center of every good story is a person with the courage to share it, and it has been Crystal Haynes' passion to tell that story well. Starting from humble beginnings in her hometown of Springfield, Massachusetts as a teen reporter for The Republican newspaper, Crystal has been a journalist for more than 20 years and has worked for over a decade in television. Crystal graduated with Honors from Emerson College, where she majored in Broadcast Journalism and minored in History and Political Communication. From field reporting during the chaos and fear of the Marathon bombings, to the streets of Boston with Black Lives Matter protesters, Crystal has strived to tell the stories that matter with a focus on objectivity. She is the founder and executive producer of Boston 25 News’ four week, Boston’s Black History: Inspiring our Future. The first of its kind for the large-market station, the series led to a joint collaboration with the City of Boston for its first ever Black History Month Art contest.
Crystal is a two time Emmy nominated reporter and had earned several awards including an Associated Press award for Excellence in Journalism. Crystal’s passion for telling stories in under-reported communities has led her to pursue a Masters Degree in Media Advocacy at Northeastern University.
