Katie Finlon is a general assignment reporter for WNIJ News. She got her start in public radio as an intern for the station and has contributed stories for them ever since. Katie earned her master’s degree in audio engineering after realizing that she loved audio editing and production during her WNIJ internship. That degree came after a bachelor’s in communication. Katie also has been Morning Edition producer for the station. Before moving into broadcast, she started her journalism career in print with her college newspaper and other local papers in northern Illinois. When she’s not in the newsroom, Katie loves spending down time with family and friends – preferably over dinner at one of her favorite Italian restaurants.
