Kara Strickland

Multimedia Journalist
Kara Strickland

I was born and raised in Kansas City, Mo. I left home for four years to attend the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO. There, I worked as a multimedia journalist for the NBC affiliate KOMU 8 News. I ventured out of my home state for just 3 months to live in Atlanta, Georgia. There I worked as an intern for Morning Express with Robin Meade, editing video and writing interview questions for the show.

I moved to the Ozarks and joined KY3 in June of 2019. Since joining the team, I have fallen in love with telling the stories of people here in Southwest Missouri, and Arkansas. As a general assignment reporter, I am comfortable doing anything from investigations to feature stories. My favorite topics include education and social justice.

I adopted the sweetest pup. When I am not working, we love to check out the nature trails here in the Ozarks. I also love to cook! If you have any recipes or favorite restaurants send them my way!
