A native of the Houston suburb of Sugarland, Texas, Kim Fischer cut her professional teeth at Fox and NBC affiliates in her home state before moving to her present position at KTVX in Salt Lake City, Utah. She obtained her undergraduate education in television, film, and radio at the University of North Texas at Denton. Pledged by the national honor fraternity Phi Sigma Pi, Kim Fischer competed in the NPC (National Physique Committee) Heart of Texas Form & Figure contest, and she pumped up the crowds at Mean Green games by playing the mascot, Scrappy the Eagle. As part of her studies, Kim Fischer reported and anchored at the campus station, NNTV; she also hosted the “Live & Loud” program. During her senior year, Ms. Fischer completed an internship at KXAS, the Dallas-Fort Worth NBC station where she later worked as a full-time news reporter. After receiving her Bachelor of Arts & Sciences, Kim Fischer accepted her first job as an anchor and producer of the morning show at KRBC in the Abilene-Sweetwater-Brownwood market. She also created reports on the crime and health beat. A year later, the dual NBC/Fox stations in Amarillo, KAMR and KCIT, offered Kim Fischer a position as a reporter for the former station and an anchor on the latter. A two-year stint followed as host and producer for Crozier and Henderson Productions on their Dallas show “Hot on Homes,” but Ms. Fischer decided she wanted to remain in the hard news field. WOAI in San Antonio offered Kim Fischer a field reporting position, mostly covering crime, which she held from 2007 to 2009. She subsequently joined another NBC affiliate in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, KXAS. After two years at that station, Kim Fischer briefly worked for Dallas public relations firm Real News PR, until KTVX, the first television station founded in Utah, offered her an anchor and news reporting position in late 2011.
