Connect With Kim Chapman

Kim co-anchors our 6 and 11 evening newscasts. She has been with NewsChannel 9 since 2001.

Her career has taken her to several cities in the Southeast and she is happy to be calling Chattanooga home again. This is Kim's second tour of duty - if you will - in Chattanooga. She was one of the first co-anchors FOX61 First at 10. From there Kim moved to Jacksonville, Florida where she co-anchored the morning news at the ABC affiliate. Now that she's back in Chattanooga she says it's great to be home!

Kim attended The State University of West Georgia where she majored in mass communications and minored in psychology. She has been recognized by the Associated Press for Outstanding News Coverage. News coverage of a train wreck in Jacksonville earned her an Emmy nomination.

Kim is very active in the Chattanooga community. She is the president and co-founder of the Miracle League of Chattanooga. The Miracle League is a world-wide baseball league for children with special needs. (More on that later.) Kim, who has epilepsy, served on the board of directors of the Epilepsy Foundation of Southeast Tennessee and was also on the board of directors for the Epilepsy Foundation in Washington, D.C. She emcees several local, non-profit events. April of 2012, our Kim received a very high honor and was named a Chattanooga Woman of Distinction.

When she's not working, Kim spends time with her husband, Bob, whom she met at NewsChannel 9. She also spends time on Facebook, reading, binge-watching shows on Netflix, shopping, working out and hanging out with her husband and their three "daughters" Polly, Sammi and Delilah. (All three are rescues and at home with their forever family.)
