Katrina Smith co-anchors NewsChannel 2 at Daybreak and Sunrise with Jason Powles and Meteorologist Jill Reale. On top of that, she produces NewsChannel 2 at Noon and works as a general assignment reporter with a focus on health and consumer stories.

Katrina manages the consumer section of the website. You’ll find segments on local businesses, up-to-the-minute recalls, info on tax filing, gas price tracking, travel forecasts and other stories that impact your bottom line.

Spending a good portion of her life right here in the Utica-Rome area, Katrina graduated from Utica College with a BA in Journalism and a concentration in International Studies in 2006.

However, she is proud of her colorful background in television, print and publishing. She worked in London, U.K., as a copy editor for a restaurant guide publishing company before returning to the region.

She also reported politics for The Legislative Gazette, a weekly publication in Albany, and worked as an assignment editor at WSTM NBC3 in Syracuse for four years.

When not at work, Katrina enjoys reading to her three children, hiking, snowboarding, and checking out local farmer’s markets for the latest locally grown products, which seem to be popping up more and more of late.

If you have a story you think needs to be addressed, whether it’s consumer-based, economy-related, or just plain fun, you can contact Katrina at ksmith@wktv.com
