Weekday Morning Anchor

and Sports Reporter

Kate Siefert is a morning anchor and sports reporter, at WTOV-TV in the Steubenville, OH and Wheeling, WV market. She graduated from Ashland University in 2017 with a degree in Digital Media and Journalism and Sport Communication.

 

During her time as an Ashland University Eagle, Kate was also a member of the Varsity Volleyball Program. Her involvement in athletics is what has driven her to pursue a career in sports journalism.

As a sports reporter at WTOV, Kate shoots local high school and collegiate athletic events, edits highlights and also shoots, and writes feature stories for WTOV’s sports segments. At the start of 2019, she also took over WTOV's Sports Challenge segment. 

Most recently, Kate has taken on a different role as the newest member of WTOV's Sunrise newscasts. In April, WTOV extended their morning show to four hours and that is when Kate transitioned into a weekday anchor position on NEWS9 Sunrise on FOX9.
