She came to WBAY from our sister stations WSAW/WZAW in Wausau, where she was a morning reporter for the Sunrise 7 team. While in school, Kailin worked for TV-10, their campus television stations producing and anchoring their news program, Blugold News Now. She also was the news director for 89.7 WUEC FM and a writer for Eau Claire’s student newspaper The Spectator.

Passionate about music, Kailin can play both the guitar and ukulele. She loves to sing and usually does so around a campfire and when camping with her family. On the weekends you can find Kailin in Madison with her boyfriend, visiting home or lounging on the couch watching Parks and Recreation. If you see Kailin out and about, make sure to say “Hey!”
