Katie Pratt is a news anchor/reporter. Katie is a Tyler native. She has had a love for journalism since her high school days when her dad took her to a local news station and she got to watch a LIVE broadcast show on set for the first time. She knew from that moment on that she wanted to be a news anchor.
Katie attended Tyler Junior College on a cheerleading scholarship. She enjoyed her time as an Apache cheerleader and living in the dorms on campus. Eventually, an ankle injury ended her cheerleading career.
Katie transferred to Southern Methodist University in the Fall of 2018, where she received a B.A. from Meadows School of the Arts. She majored in journalism with a focus on broadcast and minored in history. Katie was the Managing Editor and a Reporter for SMU-TV’s student-run news broadcast production, The Daily Update.
Katie was a member of Delta Delta Delta sorority and was on the philanthropy committee.
Katie is thankful her dad helped her find her passion early on and that she was able to work in the city where she first fell in love with journalism.
