Cincinnati - Kathrine Nero came to WCPO-TV in 1998 from her hometown Memphis, which is evident in her slight (at least she considers it slight) southern drawl.
She worked five years as Channel 9's weekend sports anchor/reporter before moving to the news anchor desk on Good Morning Tri-State in 2002. She thinks the 2:30 a.m. wake up call is karma paying her back for refusing to wake up "in single digits" throughout college.
Kathrine was raised on a steady diet of SEC football and college basketball. She began her career in sports while still in college, where she worked with the men's basketball and football programs in the Memphis Tiger sports information department for four years. She got her break in television covering sports there, and moved to the Queen City in 1998.
Kathrine gets asked two questions regularly: "How tall are you?" (answer: 4'11"); and, "Do you miss sports?" (answer: Absolutely. Especially covering the Reds, but I wanted a new challenge and GMTS gave me a great opportunity to try something different.)
But her claim to fame is her status as a former tour guide at Elvis Presley's Graceland, a job she says prepared her for the world of tv more than anything she's ever done. Kathrine is also an accomplished flutist, having played with several orchestras and symphonies through the years. She's also a regular performer at her church.
Locally, Kathrine's active in her church, several charities, and is a board member of the Family Nurturing Center, an organization committed to ending the cycle of child abuse.
Kathrine is married with two daughters and lives in Covington, where her sewing room keeps her busy during time away from work.
