As an author and a journalist, Katy Tur has inevitably become one of many American public personalities. Her journey as a journalist began at the lowly level of local station reporting but she now holds an enviable place in one of the biggest news networks in the country at NBC News.

Her journey is an inspiration for many aspiring journalists who wish to read the news to millions of viewers across American and other countries and you can read all about it below.

Who Is Katy Tur?

Katy Tur was born in Los Angeles, California on the 26th of October, 1983 to parents, Marika Gerrard and Zoey Tur. Both her parents were members of the journalism industry and the passion and interest of her parents apparently rubbed off on Katy and became the inspiration that spurred her on to pursue a career in the profession. The Jewish born journalist grew up alongside a brother named James who is a medical student.

She began her journey to becoming a journalist at Brentwood School where she graduated from in 2001 before proceeding to the University of California where she earned a degree in Philosophy, graduating in 2005. Post-graduation, Katy Tur began her career at KTLA and worked for different broadcasting stations such as HD News/Cablevision, News 12 Brooklyn, Fox 5 New York, and a couple more others, including The Weather Channel before she got her chance to join WNBC-TV, a local NBC affiliate station in 2009.

Her performance at WNBC-TV took her all the way to the national news network, NBC News where she has worked as a news correspondent and anchor. Having demonstrated excellence in her work during her stay at the station, Katy Tur has been at the receiving end of a couple of awards, including AP’s Best Spot News Award and the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism.

Having been assigned to cover the Donald Trump Presidential Campaign, Katy Tur’s coverage brought her under strong criticisms and attack from Donald Trump who repeatedly asked the network to fire her. She published her experience with the campaign in September 2017 in a book titled – Unbelievable: My Front-Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History.
