Beth Vaughn is pleased to join RTV6's team of award-winning journalists.
Beth comes to the Hoosier state from our Scripps TV station in Kansas City, KSHB. While in Missouri, she reported extensively on the wildest tornado season in the country's history, the growing sex abuse scandal in the local Catholic diocese and the excitement surrounding the 2012 All-Star Game in Kansas City.
Most recently, Beth was recognized for her reporting on a drug given to women in the 1960s and 1970s that now causes breast cancer in their daughters and granddaughters. She believes storytelling, no matter what the subject, is not only meant to inform but also to connect us as individuals.
Beth is a two-time Emmy award nominee, a Kansas Association of Broadcasters award winner and a Society of Professional Journalist award winner.
Before stopping in Kansas City, Beth helped start the days of Northeast Kansas residents as morning anchor at KSNT. She began her career with internships at WCIA in Champaign, Ill. and at MSNBC in New York.
Beth graduated from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. While on campus, Beth led the Marching Illini as drum major. It was, by far, her loudest job yet! She loves the Orange and Blue but is proud to be a new Hoosier.
"My husband and I can't wait to meet the great people of Indianapolis," Beth said. "We are both Midwest natives with Midwest values, so Indiana is a perfect fit. I am eager to join Marc and the rest of the RTV6 news team in bringing viewers the stories, weather and traffic that matters most in the morning."
Community involvement is very important to Beth. She is actively involved in the Indiana Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. In Kansas City, she worked closely with the Easter Seals Capper Foundation and Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Beth and her husband, Paul, enjoy spending their free time with family and friends, cooking and traveling. They live in the Indianapolis area with their puppy, Trudy. They’re eager to try out all of what Indianapolis area has to offer.
