Kristi King


Kristi King is a veteran reporter who has been working in the WTOP  newsroom since 1990.

For nearly two decades Kristi worked “morning drive” and was on the clock at 4 a.m. to bring you news of what happened while you were asleep. Now she enjoys a front row seat to history-in-the-making during daylight hours covering everything from breaking news to consumer concerns and the latest medical developments.

She enjoys volunteerism and frequently reports from WTOP community events such as blood drives and flu shot clinics.

Kristi has been a volunteer reader since 1997 with The Metropolitan Washington Ear that helps serve the blind, visually impaired, and people with physical limitations that prevent them from effectively reading print.
