Kate Garner

Kate Garner

The biggest thing you should know about Kate is she loves Iowa (especially Des Moines)! She’s a life-long Iowan. She’s been doing the radio thing since 1985 at Valley High School. That’s where her passion for news began; she wanted to be Walter Cronkite or, more likely, Murphy Brown.

She lives in the Drake Neighborhood with four furry children—cats Sheldon, Obi-Wan, Nora Charles and Mikhail.
