Rania Kaur


Rania Kaur joined KPLC in October 2019 as a reporter. Born and raised in the Seattle area, as a kid, she loved talking to those around her and watching local news, but didn’t know that she wanted to be a reporter until much later. She started off as a Biochemistry major at Seattle University, then stumbled into journalism and immediately fell in love.

She was a reporter and anchor at her school’s station and wrote for her school paper. She was also the student representative for the Seattle Chapter of the Asian American Journalists Association.

Being from Seattle, she cheers for the Seattle Seahawks, is addicted to drinking coffee (or chai), and is loving the Louisiana sun (she doesn’t get much in Seattle).
