Mikenzie Frost covers all things politics and public policy in Michigan’s capital city of Lansing.
Mikenzie grew up in Metro Detroit and became an "honorary Yooper" when she attended Northern Michigan University and studied multimedia journalism. Upon graduation in 2015, she moved to Montana and was a reporter for KTVH in Helena. Shortly after, Mikenzie was promoted to the main evening anchor, delivering the news at 5, 6 and 10 p.m.
During her time in Montana, Mikenzie was able to tell a variety of stories ranging from breaking news coverage of an earthquake, to historic snow levels that trapped entire communities for weeks, to high school graduation requirements that weren’t preparing students for their future.
The Montana Broadcasters Association honored Mikenzie with the "Best NonCommercial Program of the Year" in 2018 for a 30-minute special she solo wrote, shot and produced about the charm and challenges of rural education across Montana. In 2017, Mikenzie won second place in the Montana Broadcasting Association's Best News Writing category for a piece she wrote about a 30-year-cold case.
