Allison Smith

Anchor, KETK Today 5-7am

June 2015 - Allison Smith joined KETK Today as an anchor in June 2015.

Allison was raised in Austin, Texas, but ventured to the Sooner State to attend the University of Oklahoma where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in journalism. She reported, anchored and produced for the college's award-winning newscast OU Nightly. During her time at OU, Allison received The Society of Professional Journalist's "Television Breaking News Reporting" award for her coverage of the Norman hostage situation. She also interned for KFOR in Oklahoma City and KXAN in Austin, where she interviewed Richard Linklater, director for Boyhood and Before Midnight.

When Allison is not in the newsroom she loves to travel, spend time with her two rescue kitties and enjoy some creamy jalapeno dip at Chuys.

Allison is excited to be back in the Lone Star State. If you see her around be sure to say "hi," or if you have a story idea you'd like to share.
