Kirsten McIntyre is a longtime Oklahoma journalist who can be seen as a reporter on News 9 this morning.

A native Oklahoman from Burns Flat, McIntyre joined News 9 as an intern. She remembers being so excited to learn from the news team she grew up watching. After graduating from Oklahoma Baptist University with a degree in telecommunications, she began working at News 9 as an associate producer. A year later, McIntyre moved on to her first job as anchor and reporter at KAUZ in Wichita Falls, Texas. 

McIntyre returned home to Oklahoma to anchor at the local Fox affiliate. Six years later, she left Fox to freelance at KFOR. Her career came full circle when she rejoined the News 9 team in October 2003. Her career highlights include covering the May 3, 1999 tornadoes, interviewing Hollywood celebrities and flying with the U.S. Thunderbirds.

Believing in community service, McIntyre emcees numerous events for various charities and organizations across the state. Currently, she serves on the board of directors for the Oklahoma 4-H Foundation. Among her honors are alumni president for Oklahoma Baptist University, 4-H Outstanding Alumni and the Jaycees' Outstanding Young Oklahoman.

When not reporting the news, McIntyre likes to shop for treasures in junk stores, decorate her home and spend time with her family. Her husband and three children live in Edmond. As a family, they enjoy movie nights with nachos and pizza always on the menu. McIntyre is also a member of Henderson Hills Baptist Church in Edmond.
