Kacey Montoya is an Emmy Award winning reporter who joined KTLA as a general assignment reporter in June 2013. Prior to KTLA, she spent more than five years at CBS affiliate, KOIN-TV, in Portland, Oregon, where she was an anchor and reporter. She also spent two years at the CBS affiliate in Palm Springs, California, and a year at WOAY-TV in Oak Hill, West Virginia.
Kacey was born in Orange County, but raised in Dallas, and yes, she’s a Dallas Cowboys fan! She graduated from California State University, Northridge with a degree in broadcast journalism. At CSUN, she earned many awards, including first place for TV in-depth reporting for her talk show on political free speech. Kacey interned at CNN Los Angeles in the entertainment news department.
Since joining KTLA, she’s won several L.A. Press Club Awards, a Golden Mike, and another Emmy Award. You’ve also seen her filling in on the anchor desk, at the weather wall, but she’s most passionate about helping people with KTLA’s Problem Solvers reports. You can send your story ideas to her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2017, she started her own 501(c)(3) nonprofit called Fix’n Fidos to help put a dent in the pet population by paying for spay and neuter surgeries for low-income residents in Southern California, and financially assisting pet owners with unexpected vet bills so they don’t have to surrender their beloved pets to shelters because they can’t afford their medical care.
When she’s not working, you’ll find Kacey with her two rescue dogs, working out, or maybe on FaceTime with her family since she is one of seven kids.
Kacey competes on KTLA’s triathlon team every year and her team has even won first place.
