Karen Compton is a Web Producer and began working at WTRF in 2020. She writes stories and produces content for WTRF’s website and social media channels.
Compton’s favorite element of the job is breaking news and writing the most accurate, up-to-the minute stories for the audience.
An Ohio Valley native, Compton worked as a print journalist and an Associate Professor of English in Ohio.
Compton earned a master’s degree in journalism from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University as well as a master’s degree in English from Ohio U. She also holds two undergraduate degrees.
Compton is a true news hound. When she is not producing the news, she is reading or watching it.
Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family and her Dalmatians. She can be seen on the show dog circuit with her liver brown and white Dalmatian, K.C. She is married to an Australian man and loves to travel.
