Catherine comes to the show from Tulsa, Oklahoma, where she covered city news, politics and development for the local public radio station, KWGS, as a staff reporter. Before that, she studied economics and English at the University of Tulsa. During her time at TU, she served as editor-in-chief of the student newspaper, spent a summer as an intern for APM's business and economics show Marketplace, and developed a habit of complaining about gender roles in television shows.
