FOX19 WXIX reporter Ben Katko - Cincinnati News, FOX19-WXIX TV

Reporter Ben Katko

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, and most recently hailing from Morgantown, WV, Ben and his wife have taken those ‘Country Roads' to Cincinnati to settle down in their new home.

He spent the last three years as an anchor/reporter at WDTV in Bridgeport, WV before coming to FOX19.

Ben is a graduate of West Virginia University.   On Saturday's during the fall, you can find Ben in front of his television cheering on his beloved Mountaineers. 

Besides cheering for his alma mater, Ben was born and raised to bleed Black and Gold and to cheer on the Pirates, Penguins and Steelers.  Please don't hold this against him, it's nothing personal to the people of the Queen City!

When he has some free time, you can find Ben trying to hit his golf ball out of the woods at local golf courses, trying out new restaurants around town and learning more about the rich history of Cincinnati.

Ben would love to hear from you if you have any comments or great story ideas.  Feel free to shoot him an email at
