Kathy Park is a weekend evening anchor and general assignment reporter for KCRA 3 in Sacramento. Since arriving to the golden state in July 2014, she has covered major breaking news stories both in the field and on the anchor desk, including the King Fire and the Napa earthquake.
Before moving west, Kathy was based in our nation’s capital at WJLA/NewsChannel 8. During her time there, she reported on many high profile events including both inaugurations for President Barack Obama, the Navy Yard shooting, and the blizzard of 2010, which earned her an Emmy nomination.
Kathy started her career in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia at WCYB/Fox Tri-Cities. She is a native of the DC-metro region, and graduated cum laude from the University of Maryland. As an undergrad, she reported for the school’s award-winning Capital News Service.
One of her first opportunities in a local newsroom was at the CBS affiliate in Phoenix, where she worked as a Meredith-Cronkite fellow.
Outside of work, Kathy enjoys volunteering and is an active member of the Asian American Journalists Association. She is excited to call Sacramento her new home, and loves exploring the area — especially anywhere near the water.
