Courtney Sturgeon


Courtney joined the KTTC NewsCenter in October of 2012.  She is based at KTTC's newsroom in Austin, covering a wide area stretching from Albert Lea to Owatonna and into northern Iowa.  Courtney graduated from DePaul University in Chicago with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and minor in Communication and Media.

While working towards her degree, Courtney reported for the University's newspaper "The DePaulia" and news program "Good Day DePaul."  Several of her reports have been recognized by DePaul University and the Society of Professional Journalists.  She was also honored as a NATAS Student Achievement Award Nominee from the Television Academy, the producers of the Chicago/Midwest Emmy Awards, for her coverage of the "Occupy DePaul" protests.  Courtney completed internships with NBC 5-WMAQ and ABC 7-WLS while attending school in Chicago.

Besides Journalism, one of Courtney's greatest passions in life is spending time with senior citizens.  She has been volunteering at nursing homes since she was 11 years old and plans on owning a senior home of her own one day.  Though her talents are limited in the kitchen, Courtney enjoys trying new cuisines and will eat any kind of food if it's dipped in chocolate.
