Katie Zuniga

Katie and her husband have been long-time high school sweethearts and have two children together. Katie was born in Oregon but has lived all over the world. They continue to come back to the Pacific Northwest, as she and her husband love all it has to offer, from the coast to the mountains.

In the summer, you will find them kayaking, camping, and gardening. In the winter, they love to hit the slopes, and you will often find her with a latte and a sewing machine or knitting needles in hand.

Before working in journalism, Katie started and ran a wedding and event planning company for more than 10 years. She became interested in writing and telling stories when she became a regular guest on a morning news show in Portland talking about wedding trends and planning.

Katie then went back to school for broadcast journalism, which led her to her first job in broadcast news in Central Oregon. Not long after she started there, she trained to be a weather anchor fill-in. It didn't take long for Katie to realize she loves the weather!!! In the fall of 2019, she returned to school in the online program at Mississippi State University. Katie graduated in 2022 with a Bachelors of Science degree in Broadcast and Operation Meteorology.
