Regan Porter joined the FOX4 News team in March 2019. She is an energetic multimedia journalist ready to report stories that mean something to you.
Regan is no stranger to our community; she is a native Kansan. A visit to one of the Kansas City news stations in third grade actually sparked her interest in journalism!
She turned that dream into reality when she landed her first job at WIBW-TV in Topeka, Kansas. For more than three years, Regan worked as a multimedia journalist, producer and morning news anchor there. She recorded, wrote and edited her own stories. Throughout her time in the Capital City, Regan covered breaking news, crime, high profile court cases, the legislature, local government and more. Her reporting and anchoring earned her multiple awards from the Kansas Association of Broadcasters and the Kansas City Press Club.
Regan first gained experience as a journalist through the 21st Century Program at Olathe Northwest, where she attended high school and earned an endorsement in Broadcast Journalism.
From there, she went on to play one year of collegiate volleyball at Rockhurst University in Kansas City, Missouri. At that time Regan was a Hawk, but the Wildcats were calling her name. She transferred to Kansas State University where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Mass Communication with focuses in Digital Media and Spanish. Much of her time in Manhattan was dedicated to working at Channel 8 News, K-State HDTV and the Kansas State Collegian.
Philanthropy is a priority for Regan, as she has been a Master of Ceremonies for numerous events. She was humbled to be nominated as a 2018 Woman of Excellence for her work with the YWCA of northeast Kansas.
It is her daily goal to seek out and follow-up on stories that have an impact on people. Our community can rest assured that she will work to uncover the truth and report in-depth meaningful stories.
When she’s not working, Regan enjoys cheering on the Chiefs and Royals, working out and spending time with friends and family.
