Kate Cornell

While Kate will always be a Jersey girl at heart, she has bounced around the south quite a bit and has no plans of leaving anytime soon! 

She attended The University of Alabama, where she studied Communication and Information Sciences. During her time at UA, she reported at WVUA23 News, covering all things West Alabama.

Her passion for storytelling continued when she jumped on board the WWAY News ship in Wilmington, North Carolina. 

She joined the WJTV team in August, 2019 and has been enjoying every minute of it.

There are many things that Kate loves about reporting, but the two most important ones are meeting interesting people and going interesting places. That includes politicians, local bigwigs or even cute third graders organizing a food drive.

Her favorite topics to cover are social justice and education, but she is always prepared to roll with the punches!

When Kate is not hard at work, she is impulsively petting the nearest puppy, in a yoga class or teasing her coworkers who attended SEC colleges that are not University of Alabama. If you have a news tip or story idea, she would love to hear from you! Email her at kcornell@wjtv.com. Be sure not to use an Oxford Comma, as that is her biggest pet peeve!
