For nearly four years, Rachel Collier has been pursuing her passion: reporting news on television. As a reporter for Louisville's #1 morning show, WDRB in the morning, Rachel brings news to viewers in Kentuckiana every weekday morning. You can also catch Rachel anchoring WDRB's midday show at 11:30. In 2012, Rachel was recognized as a finalist for a Kentucky Associated Press award for Best TV Reporter. One of her favorite events to cover is the Kentucky Derby, where she can take in all the sights of horses, fashion and even interview celebrities.
Rachel found her drive for news at a young age, when she was asked to read announcements on TV during middle school. There was no question she would pursue a journalism degree after working for Ballard High School's television news program.
Rachel started her "real" career at WBKO in Bowling Green before coming to WDRB in April of 2010. It wasn't her first stint here -- she soaked up a lot of knowledge at the station while interning in college.
Rachel's a Louisville girl. She was born and raised in the city, and much of her family is still here, including her parents and two sisters. She's proud to call herself a Western Kentucky Hilltopper after graduating cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in broadcast news. She minored in music, and even sang the national anthem at several WKU basketball games.
She enjoys reading true crime books, going on walks, swimming, playing piano and hanging out with friends and family.
Rachel is married to her college sweetheart, Bryan, and they have one "child"--a golden retriever they rescued and named Sadie.
