Title: Anchor

Karly Tinsley joined the KEZI 9 News team in May 2021 as a news reporter and anchor. Karly anchors KEZI 9 News at 4 p.m. and 11 p.m. every weeknight.

Most recently, Karly spent two years as a news reporter and anchor for KOLD-TV in Tucson, Arizona, covering the immigration crisis at the U.S. border and other breaking news.

Karly also enjoys investigative journalism, and telling in-depth stories on topics viewers are interested in. One of Karly's favorite news stories was about "Boommates," or Boomer roommates, who were finding creative ways to survive and thrive during Tucson's housing shortage.

Prior to Arizona, Karly spent a year and a half as the weekend anchor at KNDU-TV in Tri-Cities, Washington, where she also reported and covered the weather.

In 2017, Karly graduated from the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University. She was born and raised in Washington state, and couldn't be happier to be back in the Pacific Northwest at KEZI 9 News. When Karly isn't working, you can find her reading a book, hanging with her rescue cat Finn, or out on a run.

Karly loves to tell stories, so if you have one to share, you can email her at karlytinsley@kezi.com. You can also follow Karly on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
