Katlyn Gardenhire is a hometown girl from Beebe; she joined the THV11 team as a full time multimedia journalist in January of 2016.

You can see her reports in the 5, 6, and 6:30 p.m. broadcasts. She graduated from Arkansas Tech University, where she received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Broadcast Journalism in December of 2015.

The event that led the path for Katlyn’s passion of reporting was when she was selected as a "kid-caster" on THV11 at 12-years-old. When she did the weather with Ed Buckner on live TV, she was hooked, and knew that being in a newsroom was where she belonged.

In her spare time, Katlyn enjoys working out, exploring Arkansas’ great outdoors, trying out different restaurants, and of course, cheering on the Razorbacks!

She is very passionate about telling stories and loves getting to know people in the community. If you see her out reporting feel free to stop her and say hello!
