Katie Nordeen

Evening News Anchor

Katie Nordeen joined the FOX8 Evening News as an anchor in January 2013. After being an early riser for more than a year (her alarm went off at 1:30AM!), Katie is excited to work on “this side of the clock.”

Katie came to FOX8 as a general assignment reporter in June 2010 before joining the morning team as an anchor in September 2011.

Katie got her start in Duluth, MN as an anchor and reporter. During her time there, Katie received a Regional Broadcast Emmy for her work as the weekend anchor. Katie also spent time in Boulder, Colo. where she studied Broadcast Journalism at the University of Colorado-Boulder.

After a lifetime of cold summers and harsh winters, Katie is happy to call the Piedmont “home.” In fact, it didn’t take long for her to fall in love with the area, the traditions and the people.

Katie comes from a large and close-knit family. It just so happens one of her siblings lives right down the road in Chapel Hill.

Katie is very active in Special Olympics and is honored to be on the Special Olympics North Carolina Board of Directors. Katie's passion is inspired by her niece Eleanor who has special needs.

When she's not working, Katie enjoys shopping, reading, running, and spending time outdoors. Twice a month, you’ll find Katie volunteering in Ms. Anne’s class at the Children’s Center. Thanks to the Morning Team’s efforts with Share the Harvest, Katie also discovered her passion for gardening. Her not-so-guilty pleasure is watching Reality TV.

Katie is the proud mom to two four-legged babies: Louie the Dog and Gail the Cat. Louie became an instant celebrity in November 2011 when he was featured in a series called “How to Train Your Dog.” Naughty but lovable, Louie keeps Katie very busy!
