Kathryn Dunn graduated from Baylor University where she majored in Speech Communications. During college Kathryn competed in the Miss America and Miss USA pageant systems, and held the prestigious titles of Miss Frisco, Miss Plano, Miss Fort Worth, and Miss Dallas County. She is one of only 3 women in Texas pageant history to place in the Top 5 in both pageant systems. In 2014, everything came full circle as Kathryn was awarded with the “Miss Texas Woman of Achievement” award, given to her for her ability to serve as a mentor to others. Pageants have been an essential training ground for Kathryn as she continues to break into the broadcast industry. This past October, she expanded from her Texas roots and broadened her experience to Colorado, where she then placed 1st runner up to Miss Colorado USA 2017.
After graduating from Baylor in 2013, Kathryn entered into the sports industry as a Dallas Mavericks Dancer. Her position as a dancer allowed her to be a great ambassador for the organization and gave her exclusive opportunities to emcee the games and provide fan entertainment interviews for the Mavs Insider on Fox Sports Southwest. While dancing for crowds over 30,000 people was exhilarating, Kathryn knew that she would much rather be speaking to the crowd as a host and personality. After 3 great seasons, Kathryn made the decision to retire her pom-poms so that she could focus full-time on her broadcasting career.
Dancing gave her a front-row ticket into the sports industry, and now her experience spans beyond the NBA. As a reporter for D210 SPORTSTV on Spectrum Sports (formerly known as Time Warner Cable Sports), Kathryn covers Dallas Cowboys football and FC Dallas soccer. In addition, she hosts a video series called “Inside the Revolution” geared towards the avid fans of Texas Revolution indoor football. During Summer 2016, she was the In-Game Host for the MiLB Frisco Roughriders. She has worked with Bryan Broaddus of D allasCowboys.com to cover the 2015 Cowboys’ mini-camps and Media week and has also chimed in as a guest contributor on the Shan & RJ Show on 105.3 The Fan. Kathryn’s work has been featured on Bleacher Report, Busted Coverage, and most recently on BuzzFeed as one of the “Top 8 Instagrams to Follow if you Live in Dallas”.
While Kathryn enjoys keeping up with her favorite sports teams, her passion actually stems from her love for the fans and entertainment. It’s this passion that encouraged her to make the transition from dancing and sports to now work as the field reporter for the “Today with Kandace” show on CBS’ KTXA 21, produced by award-winning Identity Media Services, LLC. As a part of this major-market morning show, Kathryn takes viewers through a multitude of environments related to industries involved in Home, Health & Beauty, and Leisure. You can catch her every weekday at 8:30 am!
