Catherine Silver joined the News 6 team as a reporter in April 2022 when she left the mountains of Colorado to return to the beaches of her hometown.
Her story begins growing up in Orlando, where she first discovered her love of writing. At the young age of 9, her work was published in a book. Needless to say, it left an impression and her love of storytelling blossomed into what is now a career that has also taken her on an unforgettable, cross-country journey.
Catherine started her career in broadcast journalism in the state of Florida, where she was born and raised. While attending Florida State University, she spent a summer at NBC 6 South Florida in Miami where she helped an experienced team of investigative journalists share important local stories that made a difference to the neighbors they served. The work they were able to do for the community solidified her calling to become a journalist. So in 2014, she bought some winter coats and boots, and moved to Minnesota, eager to start her career as at the PBS owned station KAWE Lakeland News. There, she served as an anchor and reporter on the evening newscasts before joining the KSNB NBC Nebraska team in 2015.
In 2017, she headed to the mountains, where she spent nearly five years in Colorado Springs working as a lead reporter and weekend anchor. There she covered stories across Colorado, including high-profile court cases, wildfires, and the tragic mass shooting at a Boulder supermarket.
Catherine's time in Minnesota, Nebraska, Colorado, and now back in Florida, has taught her that everyone has a story to share, and those shared moments matter to us all. She is excited to tell stories now in her hometown on WKMG News 6. And she says she is only looking forward to seeing the snow again on vacation!
In her spare time, Catherine enjoys spending time with friends, going to the movies and listening to music. She also loves to meet new people and is always up for traveling to new place and trying new things.
