Porsha Riley joined the KAKE News team in March of 2018 and comes to Wichita from Tulsa, Oklahoma where she was a reporter and digital media producer for KOTV. There she reported everything from sports to breaking news, including Kobe Bryant’s final road game and an officer-involved shooting that drew national coverage for several weeks.
She enjoys being a reporter because it gives her the opportunity to meet people and make a difference through her storytelling.
She graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma with a degree in broadcast journalism. During her time at UCO, she reported for the university’s news cast and sports shows. She learned how to be a “one-woman band,” shooting, editing, and producing her own content.
In her free time, she loves spending time with her family, fishing, hiking attending sporting events, working out and eating. As a self-proclaimed foodie, feel free to email her recipes you’d like to share in addition to story ideas.
She also enjoys watching highlights of NBA, NFL and MLB greats, past and present.
Porsha is excited to get to know and be a part of the Wichita community as an Okie living in the Sunflower State
