Katie is a sports enthusiast passionate about people & storytelling.
She grew up in the small town of Delano, Minnesota as the only girl in the middle of 6 boys. Her childhood consisted of running around cold hockey rinks and spending weekends traveling in the family 15 passenger van to games and practices.
She was a competitive 3 sport athlete throughout high school, earning honors in Volleyball, Basketball and Softball. After graduation, she attended the University of Hawai’i at Hilo where she walked on to the Women’s Basketball Team.
It was an enjoyable time for a Minnesota girl to live in paradise and attend school. She loved competing, but she became more focused on pursuing a career from the sidelines.
Katie transferred to St. Cloud State University and began to discover her passion for storytelling. She graduated in the Summer of 2018 with a degree in Mass Communications with an emphasis in Television Broadcast Journalism.
After graduation, she was hired by FOX Sports North as a Reporter covering Gophers Hockey, Wild, Twins, Timberwolves and Lynx content on both linear and digital platforms.
In 2019, she accepted a position as the Pre/Postgame Host of the Philadelphia Flyers broadcasts on NBC Sports Philadelphia where she covered the Flyers throughout the 2019-20 regular season as well as two rounds of the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
She currently serves as a Host of EA Sports Madden Championships series coverage streaming live on YouTube & Twitch.
A full-time lover of meeting new people, baking and drinking coffee, Katie enjoys multi-tasking, staying busy and taking on new challenges, which she credits to growing up in an always-busy family of 9.
