Kristin started at KAPP/KVEW in June of 2016 as Chief Meteorologist. Watch her weather reports weekdays on Good Morning Northwest from 5 to 7 a.m., or her weekly news segment called 100% Chance of Wine airing Wednesday evenings.
Kristin Walls was born in a small town in northeastern Ohio. She received her bachelor’s degree from Kent State University and her Master’s degree in Atmospheric Science from the Ohio State University. Kristin’s thesis focused on how tornadoes and derechos formed in the Ohio Valley since 1950. During Kristin’s time at OSU, she got the chance to travel down to Peru and study volume changes to the Quelccaya Ice Cap.
In 2009, Kristin started her television career at WTOV9 in Steubenville, Ohio. While at WTOV9, she covered the 4th biggest snowstorm on record in the Ohio Valley. The storm accumulated up to 20 inches of snow over a span of two days.
In 2011, she went to WHAS11 in Louisville, Kentucky. She started off as the weekend meteorologist before getting promoted to weekday evenings.  Louisville is a very active weather market where she had the chance to track many severe weather events including the EF4 Henryville, Indiana tornado.
She enjoys crossfit, running, hiking, exploring new places, and spending time with family and friends.
