Katie Moore is a four-time Emmy award winning investigative reporter, innovative storyteller, TV talent, host and content and social media professional. And oh, by the way, she’s also a mom to two littles under age 6.
From a young age, Katie wanted to pursue broadcast journalism as a career as she loves weave pictures, video, words and sound into compelling stories.
Katie was first hired as a reporter and weekend producer at KOAA-TV in Colorado Springs, CO, and by the time she left, she was the station’s Chief Political Reporter, earning a Walter Cronkite Award for Individual Achievement in Political Journalism for her coverage of local and national elections in 2004.
Katie then landed in her hometown of New Orleans, LA, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to work for legendary CBS affiliate WWL-TV. During her time at WWL-TV, Katie has been a regular feature on the station’s newscasts, both anchoring and reporting, earning four Emmy awards, story of the year honors from the New Orleans Press Club and a number of Associated Press Broadcasters Association awards.
From a haunting series about the search for Ramona Brown, a girl who went missing in a 1984 house fire, to her work on a national award-winning collaboration with newspaper the New Orleans Advocate about New Orleans Police Department response times called “NOPD: Call Waiting”, to an in-depth investigative series exposing waste, mismanagement and allegations of corruption at the New Orleans Sewerage & Water Board, Katie’s work as an investigative reporter has achieved results.
Police re-opened the investigation into Ramona Brown’s disappearance, the NOPD made the reduction of response times a top priority and the Mayor of New Orleans made sweeping changes to the management of the water authority.
Additionally, Katie’s reporting on a decaying water system in the town of St Joseph, La., led state leaders to take over the town from a mayor who took little action to remedy the problem and to prioritize repairs to the water system. Two years after her reports, the town has clean, clear drinking water for the first time in a decade.
Katie began her pursuit of a TV career after graduating summa cum laude from Louisiana State University and earning a Master of Science in Journalism from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism.
After internships at C-SPAN’s Washington Journal in Washington, DC, WAVE-3 News in Louisville, KY, and WBRZ in Baton Rouge, Katie’s first stories aired on WKYT-TV in Lexington, KY, while she was a correspondent based in Washington, DC.
Katie looks at life as a series of questions to be asked and answered and that’s what this site is. A little investigative reporting applied to real life, with some fun stuff thrown in. Have a question? Ask Katie. She will investigate…..
