Katie Inman became a valued member of the WBIR team in June 2018, stepping into the role of a multimedia journalist. Returning to the station she grew up watching is a source of excitement for her.
Originally hailing from the picturesque town of Dandridge, just 30 minutes east of Knoxville, Katie Inman is delighted to be back in the heart of East Tennessee.
Her journey started at Jefferson County High School, where she actively participated in the dance team, speech and debate, and the theater program. Her passion for performing led her to play the role of Belle in the senior class production of Beauty and the Beast. Additionally, she served her community with pride as the Jefferson County Fairest of the Fair.
After graduating high school, Katie pursued her dreams at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) in Murfreesboro, where she pursued a degree in Multimedia Journalism. At MTSU, she immersed herself in the student-run television station, MT10, honing her skills in reporting, anchoring, and teamwork.
It was during this time at MT10 that Katie discovered her love for storytelling, solidifying her path towards reporting. As she advanced through her college years, she became the News Director for MT10, guiding and inspiring fellow students to excel in journalism.
Katie also cherished her involvement in her sorority, Alpha Omicron Pi, and she proudly represented her university as a Blue Elite tour guide, showcasing the campus she held dear to potential families.
Throughout her college journey, Katie gained valuable experience through three news internships. She interned with the esteemed News Talk 98.7, the largest radio news team in East Tennessee, had the privilege of interning at WBIR in the summer of 2017, and also spent time at WKRN News 2 in Nashville.
Following graduation, Katie’s excitement soared as she officially became part of the renowned WBIR legacy as a reporter, bringing her closer to her cherished family, who are equally thrilled to have her back in their midst.
