Karen Edwards is new to Shreveport, but she’s not new to Louisiana.
She joins both KTAL NBC 6 and KMSS FOX 33 from our sister station in Monroe after anchoring and producing the KTVE/KARD morning shows starting in March, 2015.
A military child, Karen moved multiple times throughout her childhood before her father retired in metro Atlanta, Ga after serving 20 years in the Navy. She now considers Kennesaw, Ga home.
After interning at two stations in the Atlanta market, she graduated from Kennesaw State University in 2012 and worked as a reporter for online newspaper Juvenile Justice Information Exchange.
January 2013 began her career in broadcast as Reporter/Anchor for WRDW-TV where she shot, wrote and edited enterprising news stories during the week and solo anchored on Saturdays. After six months, she was promoted to Morning Reporter/Fill-In Anchor where she kept viewers in the know every morning for a year and a half.
Now, Karen is excited to help you start your day on both NBC 6 Today and FOX 33 News Good Day! You may also see her in the field reporting for KMSS and KTAL.
In her spare time you can catch her reading, catching up on her favorite TV shows and podcasts, or outside enjoying the ArkLaTex on a walk or jog.
