Katie Bente

Katie Bente joined WJHG/WECP as a multi-media journalist in December of 2020.

Katie was born and raised in Miami, Florida, and graduated from the University of Miami with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. While at UM, Katie was greatly involved in her award-winning campus TV station, UMTV. She anchored and reported for the weekly newscast, as well as hosted and produced the bi-weekly entertainment segment “What’s Pumping?” on Instagram TV Live.

Before joining the WJHG team, Katie worked as an editor at WSVN 7News in Miami Beach.

Now that she’s living in Panama City Beach, Katie is looking forward to continuing her career in the beautiful sunshine state. When she’s not in the newsroom, you’ll probably find her on the beach or at a local coffee shop. When you see her out, make sure to say hi!
