Katie has called the Lowcountry home since her family moved to Mt. Pleasant in 1999. After graduating from Wando High School, Katie attended the University of South Carolina where she majored in broadcast journalism and minored in Business Administration.
While at USC, Katie worked for Carolina News where she learned the ins and outs of being in a newsroom, reporting and being on the production side of television broadcasting.
Once she received her degree, Katie moved to Greenville, North Carolina to work at WNCT-TV. There, she started as the first digital multimedia journalist at the station before eventually transitioning into an on-air reporter position.
Katie is thrilled to be back in her hometown after joining WCBD in May 2020. She is making it her goal to tell the stories that are important to the people of Charleston and surrounding areas. If you have a story idea or tip, you can email Katie at KAugustine@WCBD.com.
On her days off, you can find Katie at the beach relaxing or exploring downtown with her friends and family.
