Hello! I’m Katie Kyros, I love meeting people and the honor of telling their stories. I always knew I’d be in news and started out as the editor of my high school newspaper, in Chevy Chase, MD, where I grew up.
I majored in English at the University of Michigan. I love the Wolverines, I know I’m in the wrong part of the Big 10 but bear with me!
Before coming to FOX43, I spent two years reporting and anchoring at WHAG-TV in Hagerstown, Maryland. That’s where I began covering central PA, as well as MD and WV.
I got to cover many unforgettable stories there. One favorite: Traveling to Marine Corps Boot Camp on Parris Island to cover local recruits, where they put me to the test– Semper Fi! And the craziest moment: One of my stories exposed bullying at a local high school– another teen showed up and actually attacked my subject in front of the camera. He didn’t get away with it, my story went viral on various news networks and he later plead guilty in juvenile court.
In my spare time, I like to road trip, learn Greek words and watch bad reality TV about ghost hunting.
On a personal note, my younger sister has autism and she’s one of the lights in my life. I’m a supporter of Autism Speaks, special needs issues are very close to my heart and I’m always happy to talk about it!
