THIS OR THAT
|Julie Grant is a reporter, anchor and legal editor at KDKA. She is thrilled to be working for the station she grew up watching.
Julie smiles when she thinks about playing in her Grandparents’ living room as a young child and hearing her Grandpap say, “Jul, put on Channel 2, please.” If he and her Nana were alive today, Julie knows they would be so proud she is working for their favorite hometown station.
In addition to having strong family ties to Pittsburgh and endless love for the city, Julie brings a unique combination of valuable training and experience to KDKA. Interestingly, she has chosen to pursue dual career paths. Julie is both an award-winning journalist and a licensed attorney. Julie has worked as an anchor/reporter at WGHP in Greensboro, NC and WTOV in Steubenville, OH. She also served as an Assistant District Attorney in Allegheny County for nearly four years.
Julie continued developing her trial expertise by earning her Master of Laws degree (LL.M.) in Trial Advocacy with Honors from Temple University’s School of Law. Julie received the Edward D. Ohlbaum Award for her commitment to the Art of Trial Advocacy and the Faculty Award for her outstanding academic performance. Julie is the only graduate in the history of Temple’s LL.M. in Trial Advocacy program to receive both awards. Julie earned her Juris Doctor degree from the University of Akron School of Law and her Bachelor of Arts degree from Mount Union College. Julie loved being a cheerleader at Mount Union and says it was a “dream come true” to continue on and cheer professionally for the Pittsburgh Penguins!
In her spare time, Julie loves spending time with her family and friends, rooting for all the Pittsburgh sports teams and hanging out with her furry best friend Rocky (a cat she rescued in North Carolina). Julie loves rekindling old Pittsburgh friendships and welcoming new ones!
