A native of Chicago's suburbs, Katie most recently covered politics and government for WICS, the ABC affiliate in Springfield, Ill.
During her time in Springfield, Katie covered the federal corruption trials of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich and the announcement of President Barack Obama's vice presidential running mate on the steps of the Old State Capitol.
She places emphasis on holding those in power accountable and tracking the money. But, one of her favorite stories is the tale of a small town doctor who only charges his patients $5 per visit.
Katie earned a master's degree in journalism from Northwestern University and a bachelor's degree in journalism with a minor in political science from the University of Illinois.
Although a Fighting Illini fan, Katie is excited to now call Indianapolis home. She looks forward to experiencing everything the Circle City has to offer, and she appreciates your Hoosier hospitality!
In her spare time, Katie puts a priority on getting involved in the communities she covers. She has been an active volunteer for Big Brothers Big Sisters.
