Kayla Vanover is among the newest faces on WAVE 3 News, but that doesn't mean she's not familiar with WAVE Country.

Kayla grew up in southwest Louisville and graduated from PRP High School in 2008.

She’s passionate about her community and is humbled to be the voice of many of her neighbors in her role as a general assignment reporter.

Kayla began her journalism career as a summer intern at WAVE 3 News in 2012. That December, she graduated from Western Kentucky University with a bachelor's degree in broadcast news and a minor in sales. 

Kayla then returned to WAVE 3 News as a content specialist, where she operated cameras, audio and graphics and produced web content.

She then moved back to Bowling Green in January 2014 to begin her reporting career at WBKO, an ABC affiliate. There, Kayla was a dayside reporter and weekend news anchor and producer. 

In her time at WBKO, she helped research investigative reports and assisted on political beats. Kayla says one of the most memorable stories she covered was the sinkhole collapse at the National Corvette Museum.  

Kayla's curiosity led her to her career. She says there is no such thing as a "stranger," adding that she’s eager to speak at and lead local events. You can contact Kayla via email about upcoming events or story ideas.

When she’s not working, she enjoys spending time with her family, shopping, being outdoors, fishing and floating in a nearby lake.
