Kate Pabich joined the NBC 15 News team in November 2013 and is extremely excited to call Madison home.
Although this is Kate's first time living in the Badger state, she has some pretty deep roots here in Madison. Her great great grandpa, Anton Metz, was one of the first to settle here and put in most of the original plumbing for the city! The Capital Times even called him Madison's first plumber in a 1942 article.
Kate, is an Illinois State University graduate and worked in Rock Island, Illinois before landing at NBC15. While in Rock Island Kate worked as a reporter and fill in anchor. She covered the Iowa side of the viewing area in 2012 as presidential candidates filed into the swing state. Kate also flew to Washington, D.C. with a group of honor flight veterans during the government shutdown and captured their stories of being locked out of monuments and battling to get through the barricades.
Aside from reporting Kate loves sailing, arts and crafts, history, and politics.
She's very excited to explore Madison and see all that it has to offer.
