I am a morning anchor on the weekends and a feature reporter throughout the week for Live at Five at Four, WBIR's fun-filled lifestyle show! I joined the WBIR team in June 2018 as a multimedia journalist, and love getting to report at the station I grew up watching!
Highlighting the happy spots of this community is something extremely important to me, because it's home. I know the power of positivity, and I strive to look on the bright side every day.
Every tenth of the month, I also bring you stories about breast cancer focused on hope and awareness through WBIR's long-standing Buddy Check 10 franchise. The monthly reminders hold a special place in my heart, and I am honored to continue the legacy Robin Wilhoit started to encourage breast self exams.
I was born and raised in Jefferson County, the beautiful town of Dandridge, to be more specific. I am a proud East Tennessean, and I never take that for granted.
I attended Jefferson County High School, where I was involved with the dance team, speech and debate and the theater program.
After high school graduation, I moved to the middle part of the state to attend Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro and pursue a degree in Multimedia Journalism. Go Blue Raiders!
While at MTSU, I dove into the student-run television station, MT10, where I learned how to report, anchor, and work as a team.
I found a passion for storytelling while in college, and I knew reporting was the route for me. I found great joy in helping others improve their work and find excitement for journalism.
During college, I was lucky enough to have three internships in news. I interned with the largest radio news team in East Tennessee, News Talk 98.7, I was lucky enough to intern right here at WBIR in the summer of 2017, and I spent some time at WKRN News 2 in Nashville.
After graduation, I was thrilled to join the legacy of WBIR as a reporter and to be closer to family—it’s safe to say my family is excited to have me back as well.
I am a lover of coffee, country music, and creativity. If you have a story idea, send it my way at email@example.com. Follow my Facebook and Twitter to keep up with what’s going on each day: @Katie_Inman.
