Meet KY3's Kate Allt.
Kate joined the KY3 News team in August 2014. She came to Springfield from Ottumwa, Iowa, where she worked for almost three years as an anchor and reporter at KTVO-TV. Kate is originally from Naperville, Ill., a suburb of Chicago, and got her Journalism degree from Bradley University in Peoria, IL.
Kate should have known at an early age that journalism was her calling when she adopted the title of “newspaper editor” to put together a family newspaper every Thanksgiving. However, it wasn't until she started volunteering for Bradley’s student-produced newscast “Midstate Magazine” that she realized her passion for broadcast.
There are many things to love about being a reporter, but the highlights for Kate include meeting wonderful people, sharing their stories and never knowing what a day at work will bring.
Outside of the office, Kate enjoys talking hockey with anyone who will listen (go Blackhawks!), traveling, reading and hanging out with friends, family and her rascal of a cat, Tazer.
Kate is thrilled to be a part of the team at KY3 and discovering all the Ozarks has to offer! If you have any story ideas, or would just like to say hello, send an email message to Kate.
