Karen wears a couple of hats here at FOX 9. During the week, she reports mostly in the early evening show. On Friday and Saturday’s, she anchors the evening news with her work buddy Tim Blotz. Try as she might, Karen can’t resist a story with some mystery behind it…which is why another of her favorite stories involved a morgue, a forensics expert and a laser. In her off time, Karen, her hubby and two sons love to take road trips. Karen says her husband has to stop at roadside dive restaurants whenever she will let him. The biggest road trip lesson of late: make sure to take a vehicle with THREE back seats…to keep her two boys a little separated.
