Katie Ferrell

Anchor/Reporter

Katie Ferrell joined FOX 4 in June of 2011. Katie anchors the FOX 4 Morning Show on the weekends and reports during the week. Katie is thrilled to be back in Missouri. She was born and raised in Strongsville, Ohio, but is no stranger to the Kansas City region. She is a proud Mizzou alumna and Tiger fan!

Prior to FOX 4, Katie spent four years at KHAS-TV in Hastings, the NBC affiliate covering Lincoln, Grand Island, Hastings and Kearney in Nebraska. There she anchored the morning and midday newscasts before becoming one of the youngest evening main anchors in the state in August of 2009. When not behind the desk, Katie was reporting. Her work in the field won her a Nebraska Broadcast Association Award in 2010. She was also an emcee and host for dozens of community events a year.

Previous to working for KHAS-TV, Katie was an anchor/reporter at the NBC affiliate station, KOMU-TV, in Columbia, Missouri. Katie anchored the Sunday newscasts and worked as a one-man band reporter, covering assignments as a photographer, reporter and editor. In 2006 Katie studied abroad working as an intern for CBS News in London. There she helped cover the Queen of England's 80th Birthday Celebration at Windsor Castle, the Da Vinci Code hearings and heated pro-Islam protests against Danish cartoons satirising the prophet Mohammed.

Katie is a University of Missouri School of Journalism graduate and has a Broadcast Journalism degree. Columbia is where Katie met her husband Danny who is a Kansas City native and Rockhurst High School alumnus. They live in Missouri with their teacup Yorkie (she's only 5 pounds full grown!) named Fergie.

Katie is active in her community with several causes close to her heart including the Big Brothers, Big Sisters Program and the United Way. Katie is also passionate about empowering young women to follow their dreams and has been asked to be the keynote speaker at several events honoring female leaders. In her free time Katie enjoys traveling and adding more stamps to her passport, shopping, reading, working out, eating out and spending time with family and friends.
