As one of our Call 6 Investigators, Kara Kenney fights for what's right and holds those in power accountable.
In April 2012, she was named Journalist of the Year by the Indiana Society of Professional Journalists. Her investigations into government fraud and waste have earned her the Richard Dreihaus Investigative Award from the Better Government Association, three Emmy nominations, an Edward R. Murrow award, and numerous awards from the Associated Press.
Her coverage of the former MSD of Wayne Township school superintendent's retirement payout earned 1st Place from the Associated Press in Community Impact, and resulted in a new state law that calls for more transparency in superintendent contracts.
Her goal is to find the truth and create positive changes in the community.
Before joining 6News, Kenney worked as an Investigative Reporter for WBBH-TV in Fort Myers, Florida where she worked on a series called "Tracking Your Tax Dollars". Before that, she worked for WSJV-TV in South Bend, IN and WAOW-TV in Wausau, Wisconsin.
Kenney is a 2001 graduate of Indiana University's School of Journalism. She's very glad to be in the Hoosier state, and loves attending IU basketball games.
She is always looking for story ideas so please contact her.
