Sullivan, a communication major, was active in UIndy’s student news operations throughout her time on campus, serving this year as news director for UIndy TV. She began work earlier this week as a reporter for WLFI-TV in Lafayette. She is a graduate of Franklin Central High School and the daughter of Patrick and Patricia Sullivan.
Faculty member Scott Uecker, a veteran broadcaster who serves as general manager of UIndy TV and WICR-FM, calls her “a leader in our program as well as a valuable and respected peer to her classmates. Kayla gives me great hope for the future of journalism. She understands that journalism is about telling stories well, keeping public officials accountable, and practicing the craft in a professional and ethical manner.”
Sullivan’s work this past year included co-anchoring live coverage of the November election for WICR, with five-minute updates every 30 minutes. She has served internships at Fox 59, WISH-TV 8 and WTHR-TV 13.
