Anchor
Yasmin joined the KVAL news team as the evening anchor in August 2012.  She grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii where she earned her BA in Biology and MA in Communications from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Prior to moving to the Pacific Northwest, Yasmin worked in Honolulu as a social media reporter and morning traffic anchor for KITV.    

The news bug bit Yasmin at a very early age. In the sixth grade, she was a cameraperson and news anchor for Kid Witness News. Her first experience on camera left her with a desire to pursue a career on television. She started competing in high school speech and debate competitions, followed by her modeling, hosting and acting career, which began in college. 
Yasmin's interest in journalism peaked while hosting a few local television shows so she interned at a local news station and fell in love with the live and breaking news action. Those feelings took her back to that day in sixth grade when she realized what her career goal was. 

In her spare time, Yasmin loves to take advantage of the great outdoors and is always posting photos of her day's adventures on Instagram. She loves connecting with the viewers so if you would like to join in on the conversation with Yasmin, you can find her on Facebook.com/YasminDarOfficial , follower her on Twitter and Instagram @YasminDar or email her at ydar@kval.com.
