Kristi King



Kristi King joined WTOP in 1990 as a traffic reporter. She spent her days driving around D.C. while providing live traffic reports six times an hour.

Although this was exciting, Kristi was eager to move into the newsroom. She caught her big break at the start of the first Gulf War, after just five months of traffic reporting.

Prior to Kristi's move to Washington, she worked as a news and traffic reporter for WOKV in Jacksonville, Florida.

Kristi enjoys volunteerism and can often be seen reporting live from WTOP community events. She has also been a volunteer reader with The Metropolitan Washington Ear since Nov. 1997, helping serve the blind, visually impaired, and physically disabled people who cannot effectively read print.

Kristi is now considered a WTOP veteran having over 20 years of experience in the WTOP Newsroom.
