Kayla Bertucci joined WGNO’s News with a Twist in December of 2017. Before coming to WGNO, she was a reporter at WMC in Memphis, Tennessee and previously the weekend anchor at KTVE in Monroe, Louisiana.
She is a proud graduate of Ole Miss, earning a degree in Broadcast Journalism with a minor in theater. During this time, she interned as a reporter for the Memphis Grizzlies, contributed content to the Ole Miss sports channel Rebelvision, and freelanced for ESPNU.
Kayla was born and raised in Tennessee, spending most of her life in the small town of Greenfield. She enjoys sitting out on the front porch with family, playing spades, eating home-cooked meals, riding four-wheelers, and going to church.
In New Orleans, Kayla says her love of journalism continues to grow as she meets the people who make this place unique.
Each one has a beautiful tale to unfold, and she is on the hunt to uncover the true heart of the Big Easy and all of South Louisiana.
