“I have spent 17 years studying, forecasting and helping people through every aspect of Missouri weather from ice storms, heat waves, floods and tornadoes,” Horner said. “It’s an honor to join KMOV’s team of dedicated, skilled meteorologists led by Steve Templeton.”
Over the summer, Horner announced she was leaving Kansas City’s KCTV to spend more time with her daughters. When she left the station last month, she said, “I still don’t know what I’m going to do when I leave KCTV 5.”
“There are few people who have the credentials Katie will bring to News 4,” said Sean McLaughlin, executive news director at KMOV. “She is a severe weather expert and will bolster our already strong weather team.”
Horner will forecast the weather on the Noon and 5 p.m. newscasts.
