Connect with Kendall
When did you start working here? February 2012
Where else have you worked? I worked as an Anchor and Reporter at WGXA-TV in Macon, Georgia from November 2008 until February 2012.
I interned with "Your World with Neil Cavuto" on Fox News Channel in New York City during the Summer of 2007.
Where did you go to college? I went to Western Kentucky University and majored in Broadcasting and minored in Political Science.
What are you most proud of when it comes to your work? I don't stop digging deeper into stories, and following up on what happens next. I'm proud to be able to say I tell the whole story. Several stories I've covered made it to the network- including one I broke before any national news outlet. In 2012, just after Sergeant Robert Bales was accused of killing 16 Afghan civilians, I discovered he was accused of stealing money from an Ohio couple. Bales still owes the couple more than $1.5 million. It gave the public another look at how Bales lived his life prior to joining the military.
What are you most proud of in your own life? Most little girls grew up playing house, but I grew up playing news. I knew what I wanted to do from a very young age, and knew I wanted to do it right here in the Tri-State.
I stalked news reporters, anchored elementary, middle and high school newscasts, and chose Western Kentucky University for college based on it's top rated broadcasting program.
Eventually, I reached my goal and landed a job at 9 On Your Side, where I'm able to share the latest news with family, friends, and our awesome viewers.
What do you love about living in the Tri-State? I'm home! I grew up in Northern Kentucky, and love working and living in my hometown.
What are your favorite local hangouts/places, sports & cultural institutions? There's nothing better than catching a live sporting event. Depending on the season, you can find me cheering on the Reds at Great American Ballpark, or the Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium.
I also have an obsession with checking out the local fare and latest hangouts in Over-The-Rhine, The Banks, and Mainstrasse.
But with hobbies like that, I've also got to make time to work out! Try running the hills of Devou Park- if you can run a mile there, you can run a 5K anywhere!
All time favorites? I could read any and all books written by Jen Lancaster over, and over, and over...
My DVR is filled with The Newsroom, Scandal, old Entourage episodes, Duck Dynasty and Real Housewives of Wherever (guilty pleasure...)
I've been to 6 Bruce Springsteen concerts- he's the one.
Breakfast At Tiffany's, Almost Famous, and Blow are some of my top movie choices
Other than 9 On Your Side & WCPO.com, you get your news from: CNN, FOX News, UK Daily Mail, Buzzfeed, TMZ
Apps you can't live without? Instagram, Map My Run, Sleep Machine.
