Multimedia Journalist, Live in the D

“I am so excited to be home and can’t wait to tell you more of what’s going on in the D.”

Did You Know…

  • That I love to cook all types of food but I make a mean Eggplant Parm and baked mac and cheese!
  • I adore animals. My husband and I have rescued 10 animals over the past 13 years. We kept 4 of them!
  • Music is life for me. I listen to everything, literally everything, and can name that tune within 2 seconds of hearing it.
  • I wanted to be a storm chaser when I was younger, like go inside the tornado and float around like in the movie Twister but my mom said it was “not gonna happen.”

Kila joined the Live in the D team in February 2018 after spending two years in Flint, MI as a Multimedia Journalist for NBC25/FOX66. She was a reporter for the 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts and a fill-in weekend anchor.

While in Flint, Kila covered the Flint Water Crisis, the 2016 presidential election, as well as other daily news stories.  Prior to Flint, she was a reporter for WMYD TV20 right here in Detroit. Kila covered multiple national news stories including visits from President Obama, the indictment of Kwame Kilpatrick and the Bashara murder case. 

Kila is a graduate of Detroit Country Day School and Oakland University. She also attended Specs Howard School of Media Arts.

When she isn't working on a fun story for Live in the D, Kila enjoys playing sports like volleyball and kickball. She likes watching sports, when the home teams are winning, and spending time with friends and family. She also loves trying new restaurants and traveling.
