Kate Siefert joined the ABC 6 and Fox 28 team in early 2022 as a reporter. Growing up on the east side of Cleveland, it's been a long-time goal for Kate to report and tell the stories most important to the people living in her home state of Ohio. Her first stop in the TV business was in Steubenville, OH, as a sports reporter for NEWS 9 and then became morning anchor. In 2019, Kate moved up to Kalamazoo, MI, where she produced and anchored WWMT's noon and 5:30 p.m. shows. Despite the brief move up north, she still didn't forget about her beloved Buckeyes.
