Kimberly McBroom

WDBJ7 Morning and Noon Anchor
Roanoke, VA

Kimberly first developed an interest in broadcasting after spending her high school years performing in various theatrical productions. She later decided that working in communications could combine her love of journalism, as well as acting.

After spending four years at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Kimberly returned to Roanoke -- and eventually back to WDBJ7. She started as Weekend Weather Anchor, and became Morning Weathercaster and Co-Anchor in January of 1997.

Kimberly lives in Roanoke with her husband Kevin, son Christopher and daughter Caitlin.
