Coastal Sunrise Anchor
Ben Katko joined the WSAV News 3 team in May 2017 as a co-anchor of Coastal Sunrise.
Ben comes to Savannah from Cincinnati where he was nominated for an Emmy for his coverage of breaking news. Before that, he spent several years working in a newsroom in West Virginia.
He is married to a wonderful young lady, and they have a son. Ben’s wife was born in the Coastal Empire while her father was stationed here many years ago with the Army.
Ben is a huge sports fan (Pirates, Penguins, Steelers and the Mountaineers!), and considers himself a news junkie. Ben loves to try new restaurants, workout and, above all, spend time with his family.
He was born and bred in Pittsburgh, PA, and earned a journalism degree at West Virginia University. He has been involved in some aspect of television for more than 10 years.
Ben is thrilled to call Savannah home, so feel free to reach out anytime! He’d love to hear from you.
