On this episode of Talking Buffalo Podcast, Patrick Moran has a chat with WKBW-TV Buffalo morning co-anchor Katie Morse on a wide variety of topics spanning her life and career.
Born and raised in Western New York, Katie talks about growing up in Amherst and some of the things she enjoyed doing in her youth. It quickly becomes apparent after a trip to Washington that broadcast news is what she wants to do with her life, and Katie puts her goals into action beginning with college at Kent State University and later Canisius College.
Katie talks about honing her craft working at YNN before getting the opportunity to join WKBW-TV in 2014. She also talks the unorthodox sleeping schedule that comes with being a morning TV news anchor, a pattern that typically results in her being up and ready to start her day by around 2:00 am every morning.
She also has thoughts on the importance of chemistry in the industry, the challenges that have come professionally with the Covid-19 pandemic, advantages of working in the town you grew up in, why she loves Western New York, her take on social media and advice for aspiring news journalists.
They wrap with a tradition on this podcast, the “Fun Fact Finale” where we learn of Katie’s favorite place to visit overseas, her first celebrity crush, a former Boston Red Sox player that’s her favorite athlete, three dinner guest she’d love to have, what her go-to karaoke song would be and much more.
Following the interview Patrick shares a few thoughts on Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Ed Oliver getting arrested over the weekend in Houston and the conclusion of the 10-part ESPN documentary series “The Last Dance” that focused on the 1990’s Chicago Bulls championship runs.
