Kaitlin Loukides

When Kaitlin isn't running, swimming, or skiing, you can find her exploring the beautiful city of Spokane, while working hard to bring you the latest and greatest stories.

Kaitlin joined the KREM 2 family at the end of August 2015 after briefly filling-in as a live morning news reporter for KSL in Salt Lake City.

Previously, she worked for two and a half years in Idaho at KIFI Local News 8 and KIDK Eyewitness News 3, where she had a ton of fun getting to know the folks who live there. 

While attending the University of Missouri's School of Journalism, Kaitlin worked as a reporter and weekend anchor at KOMU 8 News where she discovered her passion for reporting stories that can help change lives.

After graduating in 2011, she jetted-off to Washington, D.C. where she interned with Al Jazeera English's Emmy Award-winning programs "Fault Lines" and "The Stream".

If you see her around, walk up and say hello since she's excited to get to know this friendly and amazing community.

Some fun facts you might not know about Kaitlin:

- She is often mistaken for Jabba the Hutt. (Just kidding, but she DID pick up a VHS copy of "Return of the Jedi" back when she was six years old and her love for Star Wars has never faltered ever since...except for episodes two and three. They were terrible).
