Prior to FOX 5, Katie was co-anchor of News 12 "First at Five" in Augusta, GA. She's also held the position of reporter/photojournalist and was part of News 12's award-winning high school football show. Katie's journalist skills have been recognized with three Georgia Association of Broadcasters Awards, one Georgia Associated Press Award and one Georgia Association of Broadcasters Merit Award.
So, why would Katie get up each day at 1:30am and knowingly drive right into the infamous Atlanta gridlock? Well, its home! Katie grew up in Canton and it was there that her passion for television news began to grow. She was even a co-anchor for her elementary school's news when she was in the fifth grade.
Katie graduated cum laude from the University of Georgia, earning a B.A. in Broadcast News Journalism. She loves the Southeast and can't imagine being anywhere else. Katie got married in May 2013. She and her husband currently live in Forsyth County.
