Katherine Mozzone joined the CBS 42 News team in August 2020 as an anchor and a reporter.
Born in Oklahoma and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Katherine graduated from the Grady College of Journalism at The University of Georgia with a degree in broadcast journalism. She acted as a live-shot coordinator for UGA’s sports show, Georgia Gameday, and while in attendance, studied Shakespeare abroad at The University of Oxford in the United Kingdom. During her senior year, Katherine was selected as a student judge for the Peabody Awards.
Degree in hand, yet eager for experience, Katherine enrolled at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. in order to intern at NBC 4. Once the semester ended, Katherine stayed in D.C. to work on the production side of news at NBC News Channel on Capitol Hill.
Katherine officially began her TV news career in Bozeman, Montana, as a multi-media journalist and evening anchor. She focused largely on wildlife and conservation issues but also reported on a number of wildfires and received an E.B. Craney Award for her coverage. While working in Big Sky Country, Katherine forged a love for the outdoors, becoming an avid skier, hiker, and mountain biker.
After three years, Katherine moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she worked as a reporter on an award-winning morning show. In addition, she acted as fill-in anchor for the weekend morning show and weekday noon broadcast. In Albuquerque, Katherine continued to cover devastating wildfires and other weather events. She also did a number of investigative stories surrounding law enforcement and reported on the Department of Justice’s investigation into the Albuquerque Police Department’s alleged excessive use of force.
Eager to return to the South, Katherine moved to New Orleans in September 2017, where she worked as a weekend anchor and evening reporter. There, Katherine was often assigned to breaking news stories, from severe flooding and hurricanes to a deadly building collapse.
Thrilled to be in Birmingham, Katherine is passionate about covering stories that matter to Alabamians. When she is not on assignment, you can find Katherine exploring the outdoors or enjoying good food. She is an advocate for the protection of animals and has supported organizations that help people living with HIV/AIDS.
