Katie Boer is two-time EMMY nominated meteorologist at Q13 FOX in Seattle, WA

Seattle is HOME to this Pacific Northwest gal! Prior to returning back to her roots, Katie was the Weekend Meteorologist & Reporter in Las Vegas, NV. But most of her stops in TV have remained around the Northwest, previously serving as the Weekday Morning Meteorologist at KREM 2 & KSKN in Spokane, WA and was a weather anchor/reporter at KVAL in Eugene, OR. Prior to KVAL, Katie worked as an anchor/reporter at KPIC in Roseburg.

She’s a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist and creative, hands-on journalist known for her out-of-the-box reports–including extreme stunts like skydiving, lawn mower racing and scuba diving with nearly 200 sharks for her “Extreme Katie” sports segment in Eugene.

Katie is an advocate for dementia awareness and a big supporter of education. She regularly speaks to elementary students about setting goals and meteorology.

Katie graduated from Biola University in southern California in two and a half years with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and received her meteorology certification from Mississippi State University.

She’s a former ball girl for the Seattle Mariners and an avid Seattle sports fan. When she’s not working, she’s at the dog park with her golden retriever Murphy.
