Kate Houston joined 8NewsNow as an MMJ reporter in January of 2020.
Kate’s love of journalism stems from a curiosity about the world around her and a passion for videography.
Kate graduated from the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism. While in school Kate ran the university’s broadcast TV station Duck TV, and worked inside the equipment checkout center.
Kate comes to Las Vegas from Medford, Oregon where she was an MMJ reporter and weekday morning anchor. During that time Kate covered many national stories including the wildfires that devastated Northern California and Southern Oregon. Although she loved living in the Pacific Northwest, as a California-native she’s excited to be back in the sunshine.
When Kate is not reporting she loves to hike, explore new restaurants, watch UO sporting events, and relax with family and friends. Have a story idea or just want to say hi? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
