Kaye Paddyfote joined Spectrum News 1 North Carolina as a multimedia journalist in July 2022.

She was born and raised in West Hartford, Connecticut and graduated from Quinnipiac University in 2021 with a degree in journalism. During her time at Quinnipiac, Kaye interned for WTNH-TV News 8, a local ABC affiliate. Kaye also produced and directed for Q30 TV, the student-run television station. She worked on a wide range of topics including education, health disparities and investigative journalism.

She went on to earn her master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University in 2022.

When she’s not reporting, Kaye loves to try new restaurants, hang out with friends, and FaceTime her family – especially her twin sister. One fun fact about Kaye is that she has seven siblings!
