Senior Producer, Morning Edition
Katie Campbell joined KUOW in 2021 as the senior producer on Morning Edition.
She previously served listeners in Phoenix as a senior producer at KJZZ as well as an analyst and reporter during the 2020 election, during which Arizona was a key battleground state. Katie first arrived in Arizona as a newspaperwoman, specializing in state politics. She covered everything from a statewide teacher strike, the departure of two state representatives amid scandal and the rise of the states’ first known transgender judge. She also launched an award-winning political podcast for the Arizona Capitol Times.
Katie is a native Floridian and a graduate of the University of Florida’s College of Journalism, where she had her first public radio experience as a senior web producer at WUFT.
When she joined KUOW, she was also reunited with her family; her brother and sister-in-law’s first child—and the year of Covid-19 that kept them apart for more than a year—was enough to get both Katie and her mom to move to Seattle.
Katie aims to serve her community with the highest quality journalism and to be the best auntie ever.
