Vicki Karr joined the FOX 35 team in August 2019. A Florida girl born and raised, she is excited to be back in her home state.

Prior to Tucson, she worked in the Fort Myers market -- an area she's very familiar with. Her hometown is about 20 miles east of the city.
Vicki earned her associate's degree while in high school before transferring to the University of Florida, where she majored in journalism. Go Gators!
