Katie comes to 59 News from Indiana, where her parents moved to about two years ago. She did grow up and spend most of her life in Virginia, and considers herself a Virginia girl at heart.
She attended West Virginia University and graduated with her bachelors in Journalism and a minor in Political Science back in December of 2018 before joining 59 News. During her time at WVU, she was able to intern at the college radio station, U92-FM. She also interned at WSYX/WTTE in Columbus, OH.
Katie is a huge football fan, and bleeds gold and blue for the Mountaineers. She’s also a coffee addict and enjoys trying local coffee shops. The West Virginia mountains give her a ton of opportunity to hike and explore, as she likes to be physically active. She took in a kitten this last year, named Binx (from Hocus Pocus), and adores spending time with him. She’s a huge animal lover.
She’s always had a love for journalism, and can’t wait to see where this opportunity at 59 News takes her in her career!
