Hayden Packwood is a digital journalist for 12 News in Phoenix, Arizona.

Hayden is a Valley native who would take the heat ANY DAY over the cold. A 2013 graduate of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University, Hayden has spent most of his journalism career working digitally.

He joined 12 News in July of 2016 after working for a nationally-syndicated viral video TV show, Right This Minute.

As a Digital Content Producer for 12 News, Hayden covers a wide-range of topics and has a passion for telling the stories, both good and bad, that matter to his home state.

When he’s not furiously chicken-pecking away at the keyboard in the 12 News newsroom, Hayden enjoys traveling, spending time with his family, playing games both of the board and video variety, and snuggling with his rescue pup, “Fenway.”
