Kansas First News Morning Anchor/Reporter
Natalie Davis joined Kansas First News in December 2013 as the morning anchor and reporter.
Natalie comes from Minnesota with unique background. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Chemistry from St. Olaf College in May 2012. After reevaluating her career path, she decided to obtain a degree in Mass Communications from St. Cloud State University, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude in December 2013.
At St. Cloud State, Natalie was heavily involved in UTVS, the university’s award-winning television station. She was recently recognized nationally by the BEA Festival of Media Arts as the 3rd place winner in the Television News Anchor category. She has also received numerous awards for anchoring and reporting from the NATAS Upper Midwest Emmys; NBNA Eric Sevareid Awards; College Broadcasters, Inc.; and the SPJ Mark of Excellence Awards.
Natalie interned at KSTP 5 Eyewitness News and KARE 11 News in the Twin Cities.
Natalie won the title of Miss Minnesota in 2011. She was recognized as a Miss America Quality of Life Award finalist, a Miss Minnesota Quality of Life Award finalist, and the Miss America Community Service Award recipient for her dedication to serving people impacted by Autism Spectrum Disorder and other disabilities. She also won the Miss Minnesota preliminary talent award for her vocal performance of Nessun Dorma.
When she’s not in the newsroom, Natalie loves spending time with friends and family, baking (and eating…mostly eating) cookies, and singing loudly in her car or to anyone who will listen.
