Meet Kara Strickland.

Kara joined KY3 and KSPR as a multimedia journalist in June 2019.

A Missouri native, Kara was born and raised in Kansas City. She went a little further south for college, and graduated from the University of Missouri in May 2019.

While at Mizzou, Kara was a multimedia journalist for the NBC affiliate KOMU 8 News and was a content producer for Newsy. She got out of Missouri for the summer of 2018 and lived in Atlanta. There, she worked as an intern for HLN's Morning Express with Robin Meade.

Although she loves a hearty "M-I-Z" every once and a while, Kara's college team of choice is the Oklahoma Sooners. But, don't worry Missourians, she is a die hard Royals and Chiefs fan.

When she is not chasing stories, Kara loves to cook and try new foods. If you have any recipes or restaurant recommendations send them her way!
