Katie Karalis is thrilled to join ABC4 News as a multimedia journalist for its southern Utah bureau located in beautiful St. George.
Katie worked as a multimedia journalist 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.
While reporting for KRNV News 4 in Reno, Nevada, Katie covered a two-week civil trial following a prescribed burn that became an out-of-control wildfire burning down over 20 historic Washoe Valley homes. Katie believes that working in television news is the art of storytelling and a powerful way to shed light on issues close to the hearts of our local communities.
A Chicago native, Katie is excited to escape polar vortexes and spend her time in the sun hiking Zion National Park and Snow Canyon State Park. Katie enjoys hanging out with her family and two Golden Retrievers, reading, meditating and running. Katie completed the Chicago Marathon in 2016 (although she’s unsure she will ever train for another!)
Katie is proud to be a part of the ABC 4 news team. If you have any story suggestions, you can email Katie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
