Kim is an award-winning journalist whose work has been featured on CBS This Morning, MSNBC, CNN and Politico. She was chosen as the first-ever White House "Skype Seats" reporter, and her live radio banter with Buddy Cianci on the day he announced his 2014 bid for mayor landed her in the New York Times.
Kim's path to broadcast journalism was an unusual one. Born and raised in little old Rhode Island, Kim began performing at a young age. After enrolling in the prestigious Carolyn Dutra Dance Studio (under the direction of a former Radio City Rockette), Kim began to explore the performing arts.
Soon she added singing and acting to her resume and landed her first professional gig at Trinity Repertory Company in the show "The Nine Armenians" at age 9.
Once in her teens, Kim began performing in regional theaters across New England, making appearances on The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, the "Today" show and performing at venues like Carnegie Hall.
As an adult, Kim's talents took her to regional theaters across New England. She is a proud member of Actors' Equity Association.
But it was a high school internship at her local newspaper that kindled a fire Kim could never put out. The internship grew into a freelance opportunity that turned into a full-time reporting position.
From newspapers, Kim made the leap to broadcast journalism where she worked as a drive-time news anchor, fill-in host and reporter for News Talk 630 WPRO & 99.7 FM.
Kim can currently be seen on television in Providence, RI where she works as an anchor and reporter for the local CBS affiliate, WPRI 12 and Fox Providence.
Kim holds a certificate in Criminal Justice Studies/Criminology from UMass Amherst, and is a NENPA- and AP-award winning journalist.
In her free time, Kim loves to bake, snuggle with her rescue dog Marcus and try new restaurants with her husband, Ted. Contact Kim at KKalunian@wpri.com.
