In addition, Catherine served as the Bureau Chief for the station's Thomasville Bureau, located one hour south of Albany. She's grateful for the invaluable experience she gained while interning at WAGA-TV in Atlanta, and credits the FOX 5 Atlanta News Team for cementing her decision to pursue a career in journalism. Catherine graduated summa cum laude from the University of Georgia in 2014 with a degree in journalism. She served as an Ambassador of UGA's Grady College of Journalism and worked as a multimedia journalist for Grady Newsource, a local news broadcast for northeast Georgia. A native of Atlanta, Catherine is thrilled to join the WBRC team and experience the many wonderful attributes of Birmingham's Magic City!
