Kristi Kopanis

Kristi Kopanis rejoined the WTOL team December of 2017 after working as a sports reporter and anchor in Tallahassee, Florida. Before heading to the Sunshine State, Kristi was apart of the WTOL staff for three years. You can find Kristi on the sidelines reporting on sporting events and anchoring our weekend sportscasts. Kristi was born and raised in Sylvania. She is a proud alumni of Northview high school and Bowling Green State University. She is so happy to be back in her hometown covering all the local sports teams. During her time in Florida she covered the Orange Bowl, ACC Men’s basketball tournament in New York City, NCAA March Madness, the College World Series and plenty of SEC football. Kristi is excited to be working for the station she grew up watching. When she’s not being a sports reporter, sports are still a huge part of her life.
