Rhonda Kitchens is KPLC’s Morning Assistant News Director. The position brings Rhonda’s career full circle, back to the show where she began in news. Rhonda was hired in 2001 as an Associate Producer on the Sunrise show before moving in front of the camera as KPLC’s Weekend Anchor and Investigative Reporter. Rhonda has since held a variety of positions in multiple markets including California, Alabama, and Texas.
While she has won several awards for investigative reporting, Rhonda enjoys helping new journalists hone their skills. That doesn’t mean you won’t see her on air from time to time, working on special projects and helping out where needed.
Rhonda is happy to be back in Southwest Louisiana, the community she has always called home. Her greatest joy is spending time with family and friends and she’s always happy to meet new people.
