Katie Karalis is thrilled to join ABC4 News as the Southern Utah Bureau Chief based in beautiful St. George.
Katie reported in Reno, Nevada for KRNV News 4 and in Quincy, Illinois for WGEM-TV before making the move to Utah. Katie graduated from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, where she anchored and reported for the Emmy-award-winning Northwestern News Network.
She is passionate about people and committed to connecting with her sources on a deeper level, representing their voices through the timeless art of compassionate and ethical storytelling.
A Chicago native, Katie is excited to escape polar vortexes and spend her time in the sun hiking, swimming, and kayaking. She loves spending time at Zion, Bryce, Snow Canyon, Pine Valley, and Sand Hollow.
She also loves relaxing at home with her two Golden Retrievers, reading, meditating and running. Katie completed the Bank of America Chicago Marathon in 2016, although she’s unsure she will ever train for another!
