Kristi Tedesco spent 23-years working as a tireless investigative reporter, news anchor, and child advocate in Kansas, Indiana, and her hometown of Tucson. When Kristi dug into a series of child deaths in Tucson, it prompted state lawmakers to pass half a dozen child welfare reform laws. It's what led to Arizona's Child Protective Services (CPS) rebranding itself as the Department of Child Safety (DCS.) While this is a great accomplishment, Kristi will tell you she's most proud of her philanthropic project at KVOA in Tucson called Kristi's Kids. Through Kristi's Kids, she helped raise more than $7 million worth of goods and services to benefit children and families. This included free holiday gifts and meals, free car seats, free pool fences, and free swim lessons. Today, Kristi is a Realtor with Coldwell Banker in Scottsdale. She is newly married to Leif Hartwig and has two sons. Jonny attends ASU and Connor goes to Chaparral High School.
