Kate Siefert began her career at NEWS9 as a Multimedia Journalist in June 2017. She grew up in Highland Heights, Ohio -- 25 minutes east of Cleveland.
She played volleyball at Ashland University, where she graduated from in 2017 with a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism and Digital Media and Sport Communication.
While at Ashland, Kate was the Production Manager and Sports Producer for AU's student-run television station, AUTV-20, where she was also the sideline reporter for football and men and women's basketball.
Kate was also a morning talk show host for Ashland University's radio station, 88.9 WRDL and the Managing Editor of AU's student run newspaper, The Collegian, during her senior year.
While in school, Kate interned at a WKYC Channel 3 in Cleveland in 2015 and ESPN Cleveland in 2016. (She is currently adapting to becoming a Pittsburgh fan!)
While Kate is not working, she enjoys watching any and all sports, exploring the outdoors, and spending time with family and friends.
