Kathryn Dawson joined the WITN team in May of 2019 after graduating from East Carolina University in May with a degree in journalism.

Kathryn, who also goes by Kat, is from Burlington, North Carolina and knew WITN was the right choice for her. She was glad for the opportunity that kept her in NC as she feels most at home when she’s with her family or at the beach.

Since she was young, Kathryn knew she wanted to be a reporter. Her internships both at WITN and at CBS in New York City only fueled her passion for journalism.

When Kathryn isn’t working on a story, you can find her working out, going to church, spending time with her boyfriend and family, shopping, reading and/or eating ice cream (Simply Natural Creamery is her favorite!)

Kathryn loves to meet new people and to share their stories. She is excited to start her career here in Greenville and hopes this is just the beginning of a long future in journalism.
