Mandy Hrach joined the team in November 2018 as a multimedia journalist. She spent most of her childhood growing up in Ohio.
Mandy graduated from the University of Memphis (Go Tigers!) in 2016 with a degree in broadcast journalism and a minor emphasis in German.
Before her time at KATV, she spent two years reporting and anchoring for WBBJ in Jackson, Tennessee. She covered everything from severe weather to the high-profile murder case of nursing student Holly Bobo, which gained national attention.
Mandy grew up around news her entire life. She has many fond memories of going to work with her dad while he was a reporter for the Marietta Times in Ohio when she was a young girl.
Mandy loves animals and is the proud owner of a Golden Retriever Chow mix that lives with her parents in Memphis.
When she is not working on a story, Mandy enjoys hiking, trying new restaurants, and exploring all the outdoor activities Arkansas has to offer.
