Katie was also the first TV reporter to land an exclusive interview with Aaron Hernandez’s family following the football star’s death.

Prior to Hartford, Katie spent two years as an anchor/reporter at the NBC/CBS affiliates in Syracuse, New York. While in Syracuse, Katie reported live from New York City for the dedication of the 9/11 Museum, as well as during Hurricane Sandy and several of Syracuse’s notorious snow storms. Her live reporting during major flooding was recognized by the Syracuse Press Club.

A proud New Jersey native, Katie is thrilled to be living out her childhood journalism dream in Connecticut.

When not at work, you can often find Katie at her local Pure Barre studio, doing DIY projects or experimenting (often unsuccessfully) in the kitchen.
