Kym came to KDKA in 2006 from FOX 53.

You can see her behind the anchor desk with Stacy Smith during the 4 and 6-o’clock newscasts.

Kym also produces uplifting, enlightening stories for our ‘On A Positive Note’ segment, and is honored to bring viewers stories of the unsung heroes, givers, and doers in Pittsburgh.

Community outreach and volunteerism are driving forces in her life: Kym is the director of the non-profit support network ‘Inspired Women Paying It Forward’ in the South Hills. The multi-chapter organization has donated over a quarter of a million dollars to charitable organizations in Pittsburgh and across the globe.

Kym has a background in theater and dance and still enjoys dancing with her twin girls, (and her martial arts and boxing training makes her a formidable opponent in the ring.)

She and her family have the “travel bug” and savor their globe-trotting experiences around the globe.

She considers herself ‘a professional penny-pincher’ too. Always the bargain-hunter and educated consumer, she’s thrilled to share her money-saving secrets with other families.
