Anchor & Reporter for KOCO 5 News
Introduction

Katy Blakey anchors KOCO 5 News, weekend mornings with co-Anchor Dan Thomas.  Blakey joined KOCO 5 as a reporter in June 2011.  Previously, she was morning/mid-day anchor at KTEN-TV in Denison, Texas, covering Southeastern Oklahoma and North Texas.
 
While reporting for KTEN, Blakey covered some of the biggest stories in the region. From devastating tornadoes in Lone Grove, Oklahoma, record flooding along the Red River, to extensive coverage of crime and government issues - Katy is passionate about sharing people's stories and serving her community. As an investigative reporter, Katy explored hundreds of local eateries in the viewer-favorite "Behind the Kitchen Door" series.  But for Katy, the most memorable stories are those that show the resilience and generosity of Oklahomans.
 
Blakey is a graduate of Southern Methodist University with a degree in journalism and political science. She was president of her college graduating class and covered the 2004 Presidential election as an intern for The Dallas Morning News. 

When she's not working, Blakey serves on the SMU Young Alumni Board.  A member of Delta, Delta, Delta, she is proud of their commitment to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and their fight against childhood cancer.  She lives in the Oklahoma City metro area with her dog, Huckleberry.
 
Meeting and helping people is what Katy enjoys most about the news business.  So, if you have a story idea or want to contact Katy, email her at kblakey@hearst.com.
