Local 4 Sports

Katrina Hancock joined Bernie Smilovitz and the Local 4 sports department in December 2006.
In addition to reporting on Detroit's always thriving sports scene on Local 4 News, Katrina also stepped into the role of host of the weekly Sports Final Edition show airing Sunday nights at 11:30 p.m.
Katrina's career in the sports broadcasting business reads like a minor-league baseball player's.
She spent her first 17 months in Cheyenne, Wyo., at KGWN (Single-A), a year and a half at KSNT in Topeka, Kan. (Double-A), and three years at WTVG in Toledo, Ohio (Triple-A). She finally got called up to the major leagues in December of 2006 when she accepted the Weekend Sports Anchor/Reporter position here at Local 4. She's covered nearly every major sporting event in her ten-year career.
Katrina graduated in 2000 from Bradley University with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and Bachelor of Science in Communications. Before considering a career in television, she had aspirations of becoming a doctor. The obvious choice at the end of five years of college was sports broadcasting.
