Kristin Kasper joined the Gray Television Washington News Bureau in July of 2019 as a multimedia journalist.
After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, Kristin left home and set off to Wyoming, to begin her career as K2 Television’s Chief Capitol Correspondent. There, she spent three years at the statehouse, reporting on the state budget, the coal and energy industry, agriculture, and other issues affecting local Wyomingites. At the same time, Kristin ‘muddied up her boots’ by covering the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo, she trekked through forests ablaze by wildfire, and she was one of the first on scene to a massive interstate pile-up in April of 2015.
A few years later, Kristin left the Wild Wild West and found herself anchoring and reporting at WPTA in Fort Wayne, Indiana. There, she reported from a rally hosted by President Trump, during the 2018 mid-term election cycle. She also traveled to Indianapolis to deliver the results of a red-hot 2018 Senate between incumbent Senator Joe Donnelly and challenger Mike Braun. Most notably, however, Kristin was part of the team that broke news of an arrest in the April Tinsley cold case, ending decades of continuing coverage in the child’s murder, dating back to 1988.
Originally from Wisconsin, Kristin identifies as a ‘cheese head.’ While not on deadline, you might find her singing along to show-tunes on the Metro, riding her motorcycle through town, or at home, petting her cat.
