Christy Bollinger joined the ABC 36 news team as a reporter in March 2018.
Christy comes from a little western Kentucky town called Cadiz.
She graduated from Western Kentucky University in May 2017 with degrees in Broadcast Journalism and Criminology.
Christy is thrilled to be working at her dream job in her home state.
She is passionate about storytelling and you can see her weekdays on ABC 36 News at 5 and 6 p.m.
She's covered everything from visits from the sitting president and vice president, to high-profile murder cases.
When not chasing stories, Christy loves nothing more than being at the beach and says life is just better with sand between your toes and waves crashing at your feet.
She is also a big animal lover. She's a fur momma and her mini-Australian Shepherd, Milly, standard Australian Shepherd, Bennie, and her Maine Coon, Cheeto, are the loves of her life.
Christy encourages you to send her any story ideas you may have. Find her on Facebook at Christy Bollinger ABC 36, tweet her @ChristyB_news, or email her at CBollinger@wtvq.com.

"I think people genuinely are taking care of themselves, trying to be as mindful as they can but I do think there's a desire for people to still live their life," says Jessamine County Judge Executive David West.
