Colorado native Katie Pelton joined the KKTV 11 News team as a reporter in May 2015.
Before moving back to Colorado, Katie spent nearly four years at our sister station, KSNB-TV, in Hastings, Nebraska. Most recently there, she was an evening anchor, covering stories about the Keystone XL Pipeline, prison reform, immigration, the farm bill, agricultural stories and more. Prior to that, Katie was the morning anchor.
She started her career there as a weather anchor and reporter. She gained valuable experience covering severe weather in tornado alley.
Katie has always been an investigative person by nature and loves getting to the bottom of things.
Katie graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Broadcast News from the University of Colorado at Boulder. She was a member of Boulder's only televised newscast, News Team Boulder. While pursuing her degree, Katie interned at KMGH-TV, 7 News in Denver for over a year and a half as a weather and news intern.
Katie is happy to be back in her home state and is excited to cover the stories of southern Colorado. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking with her husband, running, painting and spending time with her friends and family. She also loves cheering on the Denver Broncos, Colorado Rockies, Denver Nuggets and of course, the CU Buffs.
