Katrina Nickell joined the WDRB team as a reporter in 2022. Before coming to Louisville, Katrina spent almost two years braving the cold as a reporter in Green Bay, WI. While there, she kickstarted her career early in the pandemic, informing Northeast Wisconsin about the latest updates on COVID-19.

It was also the year many eyes were on Wisconsin as a major swing state during the 2020 presidential election. But as a lifelong Packers fan, her favorite stories to tell revolved around the Green Bay Packers and the fans.

A Midwesterner through and through, Katrina grew up in the Chicago area before heading to Bloomington where she studied broadcast journalism at Indiana University. While there, you likely could find her steps away from Sample Gates inside The Media School. She says attending IU is the best decision of her life, despite dealing with the ups and downs that come with being an IU football and basketball fan.

When she’s not out chasing a story, Katrina’s favorite thing to do is explore-- whether it’s a cozy coffee shop down the street or hopping a flight to see a new city. In between adventures she’s probably on the phone keeping up with her big Greek family or friends from IU.
