Kim Fischer is co-anchor of ABC 4 Utah's 4pm, 5pm, 6pm and 10pm weekday newscasts. She also contributes special reports throughout the week.
Kim prides herself on her versatility. In her decade on the air, she has covered everything from hard crime -- to human interest stories that impact the community.
Kim grew up in Sugar Land, Texas. After graduating high school, she attended the Radio Television & Film School at The University of North Texas in Denton, Tex. While enrolled there, Kim hyped up sports fans as Scrappy the Eagle mascot, and was an intern at KXAS-TV in Dallas.
Kim landed her first on-air job in Abilene, Tex. as the morning anchor for KRBC-TV. From there, she moved to the Texas panhandle to become the main anchor for the FOX affiliate in Amarillo, Tex.
Kim took a break from news and tried her hand at hosting from 2005 to 2007. She was the face of the popular Dallas television show "Hot On Homes," but it didnï¿½t take long for her to realize she missed her real passion: journalism. So Kim packed up everything again and headed to San Antonio, where she was the lead crime reporter for WOAI-TV.
From 2009 to 2011, Kim was back in Dallas working at the station where she first started as an intern, where she reported in the morning and was the primary fill-in anchor.
Now, Kim has taken the biggest leap of her career by coming to the Beehive state. And as the saying goes, "with the biggest risks, come the greatest rewards." Kim has found her forever home in Utah.
When she's not working, you can usually find Kim outdoors -- hiking with her dog, Paris, or attempting to ski Utah's magnifiscent slopes. Kim is also dedicated to helping children and animals, and volunteers often for organizations like the National Ability Center, HopeKids and Best Friends Animal Society.
Kim believes that everyone has a story to tell. If you would like to share yours, you may contact her at email@example.com.
