 July 13, 2014(Utica, NY)- Kristen Copeland, Co-anchor of NewsChannel 2, was awarded the Les Divin Award at the Boilermaker Expo. Les Divin was a sports reporter for the Utica Daily Press and Observer Dispatch for over forty years. "I cannot accept this award alone" said Kristen. "This could not happen without the entire WKTV team." Previous recipients of the Divin Award include Steve McMurray, and Jason Powles, also of WKTV.

"Kristin was really an easy selection" said Tim Reed president of the Boilermaker. "Her dedication, be it the Go the Distance Program that trains first time Boilermaker runners, to her reporting prowess made her the award winner."   

Kristin is part of a Boilermaker family with parents and brother participants in various Boilermaker events and husband, a videographer at the finish line. 

Kristen is the mother of a daughter, Summer, who celebrated her first birthday on Boilermaker Sunday.
