Katie Corrado is the weekend evening anchor and a weekday reporter at FOX 61.

Katie has been part of the FOX61 news team since 2014, covering general assignment news with a focus on investigations. Her in-depth reports have delved into everything from nursing home abuse to unsolved murders to a week-long series on mental health. 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.

Katie graduated with honors from Fordham University, where she was named a recipient of the prestigious Edward A. Walsh Scholarship and anchored the Fordham Nightly News. She has interned with FOX5, CBS Newspath, Ralph Lauren and the investigative unit at WABC.

Katie’s work has twice been recognized by the New York State Associated Press Broadcaster’s Association.

She is an active member of New York Women in Communications and a recipient of its competitive scholarships — one of only two women in organization history to receive the honor three times.

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.
