DeSiree Fawn joined the Idaho's First News team in June 2014 as a bureau reporter for the Wood River Valley. She is a fifth generation native to the Sun Valley area. Before joining KMVT/KSVT, DeSiree made two documentary films with her independent production company, Fawn Films. Her first documentary, The Phantom Wolves of Sun Valley, takes a look at the controversy surrounding the reintroduction of wolves into Idaho. The film won numerous awards and most recently screened at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington D.C. Her latest documentary, Capturing Wild Horses, investigates the wild horses living near Challis, Idaho and the Bureau of Land Management program that determines their fate. The film premiered at the Sun Valley Festival and was nominated as one of the “Best of Fest.”
DeSiree is a graduate of The New School’s innovative MA in Media Studies graduate program in New York City, where she focused in new media and documentary studies. While earning her Master of Arts, DeSiree was one of a select group of students from NYU, Columbia, and The New School appointed to The Producers Guild East student membership program. Prior to attending The New School, DeSiree lived in San Francisco and worked for six years in public relations for Silicon Valley based media technology companies, including four years at Electronic Arts. During her undergraduate studies, DeSiree earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Montana State University, where she spent several semesters studying art in Italy.
In her spare time, DeSiree likes to take advantage of all the outdoor recreation available around Sun Valley. An animal lover, she volunteers for the Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley and is often spotted walking around with her giant white dog, Cozy.
