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.

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.
