Connect With Kalea Gunderson

Hi everyone! I joined the Eyewitness News team in July 2016 as a reporter/multimedia journalist and report in the evenings and on weekends.

I grew up right here in Charleston and am so excited to be returning home to area I know and love.

After spending the last four years at West Virginia University, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in broadcast journalism and a minor in political science.

Prior to joining the Eyewitness News team, I began my career in journalism at WDTV, the local CBS affiliate in Bridgeport, W.Va. While reporting for WDTV I was able to cover stories that affected the communities in north central West Virginia. I also interned with an NBC affiliate in Charleston.

While in college, I was very involved on campus, reporting for WVU News, WWVU-FM Radio as well as holding several positions in Radio Television Digital News Association and WVU’s Alpha Phi chapter.

During my free time I enjoy traveling to new places and visiting family and friends, and cheering on WVU in the fall.

Feel free to contact me with any story ideas at or on Facebook or Twitter!
