Kate Larsen is an award-winning reporter for ABC7 news in the Bay Area. She covers everything from politics to wildfires and feels there is no more important time for journalism than now. Kate and the ABC7 news team are very focused on ‘Building a Better Bay Area,’ through focused reporting on issues that affect people in their day-to-day lives.
Kate was born and raised in San Francisco and has spent her whole career anchoring and reporting in communities throughout California. She previously worked at KNBC in Los Angeles, where she and the news team won an Emmy for coverage of a major wildfire in Calabasas. She reported on everything from the San Bernardino terrorist attack to Hollywood’s biggest red carpets.
Kate also worked at the ABC affiliate in Sacramento, where she frequently reported from the State Capitol. Her first on-air job was at the CBS and FOX affiliate in Bakersfield, where she was honored with a RTNA Golden Mike Award and AP Mark Twain Award for her investigative reporting.
Kate is a proud graduate of UCLA. When she’s not at work, you might find her running around the playground with her daughter, going on hikes through the Presidio with family and enjoying all the great views and food that San Francisco has to offer with her husband and friends.
