Katlyn Holt is excited to join the NBC 26 news team as the first-ever television reporter dedicated to Door County. She is looking forward to making meaningful connections with people in one of the most beautiful parts of the state.
Katlyn is a graduate of Michigan State University where she was a member of MSU’s student-run newscast, Focal Point. This allowed her to gain experience as a multimedia journalist and anchor. She also has a passion for writing and was a member of Michigan State’s student-run magazine, V.I.M., where she wrote lifestyle pieces. She also participated in MSU’s BTN Student-U program where she was a sideline reporter for sporting events and called play-by-play.
Experiences outside of school solidified Katlyn’s passion to become a journalist. She interned at WDIV in Detroit, WILX in Lansing, and at Hour Detroit magazine.
Katlyn is a proud Michigan native and grew up in Metro Detroit. She is excited to experience life in Wisconsin and to continue telling stories from a previously underserved community.
In her free time Katlyn enjoys exploring the outdoors, reading, writing, cheering on the MSU Spartans, and getting to know new people.
