BOISE, Idaho — Katija Stjepovic is a Southern California native and has lived in three different states in the Intermountain West since she left home for college. She'd dreamed of being a journalist ever since she can remember. Katija graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder in 2017 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and an emphasis in Sociology. During college, she reported and anchored for CU's news program "News Team Boulder".
Katija moved to Salt Lake City to kick-start her journalism career as an assignment desk editor and producer. Not long after that, she began switching roles to be in front of the camera reporting part-time.
In the search for a full-time reporting position, Katija joined KTVB in September of 2020.
When she's not reporting, she's out exploring the beautiful landscapes and all that Idaho has to offer. She enjoys fly fishing, hiking, camping, yoga, and cooking.
