Katie Carver joined the KETK digital team in August 2019. She is a native East Texan who grew up in Nacogdoches.
Katie graduated from Texas State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Electronic Media and Mass Communications. While at Texas State, she was involved with the campus TV station serving as both an MMJ and anchor. She also became a part of the video production team for the Texas State Athletics Department, which led her to complete an independent study with ESPN+. She also dabbled in radio, contributing tourism content to KTSW, the campus radio station.
One of her proudest accomplishments in college was being selected to contributed her academic research on “Media & Makeup: How it affects girl’s confidence and self-esteem” at the National Undergraduate Research Conference.
Katie is a life long member of Chi Beta Delta, volunteering hundreds of hours to the community of San Marcos. Her passion for helping others led her to becoming Chief Service Officer her senior year. Her favorite event each year was ‘Scare for a Cure’ where volunteers help build a haunted house and all of the proceeds go to breast cancer research.
Living close to home, she loves to make trips down to Nacogdoches to see her family, have game nights with friends, and take her dog Pixie on the trails. Katie also loves to cook and hopes to publish a cookbook one day. She is excited to start her career and share the stories of East Texans right at home in the Pineywoods.
