Bri Smith



Born and raised in Larned, Bri is a Kansas girl at heart. As a child she loved writing and telling stories, which has led her to a career in broadcasting.

A proud Wildcat, Bri attended college at Kansas State University where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Mass Communications.

Bri’s first taste of broadcasting came when she was a news reporter for the Kansas State Collegian and Channel 8 News. While attending K-State she also worked as a news reporter for K-State’s radio station, Wildcat 91.9 FM and the athletic broadcasting station K-State HDTV.

During the summer of her senior year at K-State Bri followed her heart to Wichita to intern at KAKE-TV, where she fell in love with journalism all over again. With hard work and a passion for telling stories, Bri’s internship led to a reporter/producer position with KAKE-TV.

In her free time, Bri loves reading anything she can get her hands on, working out, spending time with family and friends and watching old movies.

Thrilled to have the opportunity to get to know Wichita, Bri looks forward to meeting lots of people, to hear and tell their stories.
