Olivia Gerling reports Monday-Friday for the 5 and 6 p.m. shows and weekend morning shows. She joined ABC 17 News in January 2019 after graduating from the University of Missouri. She reported, anchored and produced both news and sports at KOMU 8 News before moving across town.
Olivia has said she always hoped she would eventually work at ABC 17. She interned at the station as a producer for the weekend morning show during her sophomore year of college, not long after the weekend morning show was first created.
The Lee’s Summit native is an avid sports fan. She loves cheering on her Chiefs and Royals and is likely checking the score of sports games more often than she is working (only partially kidding!).
Her two cats Wolfie and Ace are named for her favorite X-Men member, The Wolverine, and to honor her love of baseball and former Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura. She will never hesitate to show you pictures.
