Who was Theresa Palmgren?

Theresa was born, raised, and graduated from Skyline High School in Idaho Falls in 1999. She was a proud Vandal student at the University of Idaho where she majored in visual communication before graduating in 2003.

She occasionally worked for Local News 8 in Idaho Falls after school, and after graduation, she worked as a freelance photographer for the Idaho Falls Post Register. She relocated to Spokane, Washington, in 2004 and worked as a photographer and editor for KREM 2 News.

She began working as a photographer and video editor for KTVB in Boise in 2005. Theresa’s unflagging optimism, generosity, and empathy will be remembered most for these qualities. She adored all animals, but especially dogs. Her “children” were the adored Peaches and Bandit.

Only last Autumn, a bandit crossed the “Rainbow Bridge.” She particularly enjoyed covering events for the Idaho Humane Society and the annual Pooch Party Walk & Swim held by Nampa Parks and Recreation, where she occasionally brought her own cherished Bandit.

Theresa’s coworkers talked about their interactions with her, including one time when she was accidentally tackled and mildly hurt while filming a high school football game. She completed her duty after stopping by a neighboring clinic, and returning to the station with a bandaged forehead. Her main worry was making sure her camera gear was undamaged.

Another story was shared about a time she and a colleague were live-broadcasting from a hot air balloon floating above downtown Boise during the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic. Following the conclusion of the live broadcast, the balloon was forced to make a hard landing at a nearby sports field, where it toppled over and crashed into a fence. Theresa ended herself at the bottom of the toppled basket, tenaciously guarding her camera from harm, but neither she nor her KTVB coworker nor the balloonist were hurt.


Tributes to Theresa Palmgren 

Social media was overwhelmed by messages and condolences to Theresa from a large number of friends and colleagues, including former coworkers at KTVB and other stations, within hours of the announcement of her death. Because of her kind nature, contagious laughter and sense of humor, as well as her professionalism and attention to detail in her work, which was an almost daily component of KTVB newscasts and digital programming, Theresa will be sadly missed by all who knew her.

Boise Police Department wrote: “Our hearts go out to Theresa Palmgren’s many friends and family across this community. “T” was a first responder, not in the typical sense, but a first responder to all the best events in our community. From high school and college football games, to parades, the Balloon Festival, and countless early-morning live shots with Larry Gebert supporting nonprofits. Our officers saw her there long before the event started, setting up with the production staff, and there when it was over helping tear down. She helped bring so many of these amazing community events to living rooms and shared our stories, and countless others, with a smile and a positive attitude. Rest in peace Theresa. Thank you for your service to our community.”

Jim Duthie wrote: ” Our KTVB family has been rocked by the loss of one of our own coworkers. Theresa Palmgren was a talented photojournalist and a devoted friend. Her sweet nature and embracing hugs will be forever missed. Mah-nah-mah-nah until we meet again.”

Mark Johnson wrote: “Devastating news today of the passing of my former, longtime colleague and friend, Theresa Palmgren. She was a mainstay on so many road trips we took at KTVB…she was Larry’s live shot videographer every morning for a decade. She was a dog lover, a lover of life and a shining star in our newsroom who was never afraid to ask for (and give) a hug to anyone when needed. Hug someone today for Theresa you guys. She LOVED our shoots in the mountains and I thought about her today when I looked up there.”



Coworkers from KTVB gathered on Wednesday morning to shed tears and remember Theresa, highlighting her exceptional talent for making friends with everyone she encountered and her innate capacity to console individuals going through tough times and personal losses. Theresa will always be remembered for sharing chocolates from her desk drawer and offering genuine, all-encompassing embraces.

One of the worst things anyone can go through in life is losing a loved one. Any journey must have a destination at the end. The person’s time on earth has regrettably come to an end now that they have died. We wish her eternal peace and send our thoughts and prayers to his loved ones, family, friends. May she rest in peace.
