Host, Crosscut Now

Starla Sampaco anchors daily segments on KCTS 9 as the host of Crosscut Now. Previously, she worked as a legislative reporter for TVW and later as a technology reporter for GeekWire. Outside of KCTS 9, Starla founded Career Survival Guide, a company that helps early-career women and professionals of color advocate for themselves at work. She created Career Survival Guide after noticing a serious problem throughout her career: Women and POC face unique barriers to professional success, and many of us feel unprepared to navigate these barriers upon joining the workforce.
