Katie Higgins joined the FOX23 News team in November 2015 as a multi-media journalist.
She came from the Fox and NBC affiliate, KTVZ in Bend, Oregon. She’s originally from St. Louis Missouri (Go Cards!) and is excited to be back in the Midwest.
While in Oregon, Katie reported from the sidelines of major wildfires threatening the community. She covered historical political events like the controversial resignation of a governor. She did a number of investigative pieces covering topics spanning black mold to leaders abusing power.
Before her time at KTVZ, Katie worked in the largest investigative unit in the country at NBC Bay Area in San Francisco. She assisted on stories that led to government change. This is where her interest in telling stories that matter was cultivated. She is a member of Investigative Reporters and Editors and continues to work on these skills.
Katie went to The Ohio State University and majored in public affairs journalism and minored in media production and analysis.
She loves to be active and outdoors so in her free time that’s where you’ll find her. Most likely her dog and “pawtner” in crime, Mila Coonis the coonhound will be at her side.
A fun fact about Katie, she was a competitive Irish dancer from ages 9 to 23. She’s competed all around the world and now loves to help kids learn her passion.
