Depend on Katie Beasley to get your morning started off right with Good Day Atlanta at 4:30 a.m. Then, before you get stuck in bumper to bumper traffic, turn to Katie for SKYFOX Traffic all morning long. Katie joined FOX 5 in January 2013 and she loves helping you unwind Atlanta's traffic problems.
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 1:30 a.m. and knowingly drive right into the infamous Atlanta gridlock? Well, it's 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.
