Genevieve Reaume Wraps Up Last Day at KATU News
Portland native Genevieve Reaume graduated from Jesuit High School and attended the University of Missouri-Columbia. She earned a bachelor’s degree in sports journalism in 2015.
Reaume had media internships at the Portland Society Page and the Foundation for the Undefeated. While in college, she also worked at Columbia’s KOMU-TV 8 News and was the ambassador of the Mizzou Journalism School.
Her first job after college was at KDRV-TV NewsWatch 12 in Medford, Oregon. After two years there, she moved back to Portland in 2017.
Reaume has been a reporter and anchor on KATU News for five and a half years. She’s not only accomplished multiple roles and went above and beyond to bring a story to her viewers, but she’s also endured hazards like getting attacked while reporting at a protest.
Now Reaume is leaving ABC 2 News and Portland for a new opportunity. She wrapped up her last day on the air at KATU News on November 30.
Her next stop is Bend, Oregon, where her family lives. And she’s got a new job, too.
