Catherine Merri "Katie" Pavlich (born July 10, 1988) is an American conservative commentator, author, blogger, and podcaster.
Early life and education
Pavlich was born in Arizona to a family of Croatian and German descent. She grew up in the mountainous areas of northern Arizona, where she developed interests in outdoor activities such as river rafting and hunting. Pavlich graduated from Sinagua High School in Flagstaff, where she played volleyball and basketball.
In 2010, Pavlich earned a bachelor of arts degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Arizona. As an adult woman with eligible ancestry, she became a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
Pavlich moved to the Washington, D.C. area and became news editor for Townhall.com, a contributing editor to Townhall Magazine, and a Fox News contributor. In the summer of 2013, she became an alternate co-host for The Five, a panel talk show on the Fox News Channel. She is also a National Review Washington Fellow. Pavlich has appeared on many national and local radio shows on channels including Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, and Fox Business. Starting in 2018, she co-hosted the podcast "Everything's Going to Be All Right" with former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
Pavlich was named the 2013 Blogger of the Year at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) for her coverage of the Obama administration's ATF gunwalking scandal, commonly referred to as the Fast and Furious scandal.
She has authored Fast and Furious: Barack Obama's Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Cover-Up (2012) and Assault & Flattery: The Truth About the Left and Their War on Women (2014).
She was named the 2014 Woman of the Year and given the 2013 Conservative Leadership Award from the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute.
On the March 19, 2019 broadcast of the Fox News show Outnumbered, Pavlich said that America was the first country to end slavery within 150 years and receives no credit for it. The remark was disputed with Latin American countries that outlawed slavery earlier and quicker than the U.S. such as Mexico, Argentina and Venezuela.
In September 2019, she questioned Greta Thunberg's climate change activism, saying "She claims that there needs to be more information about the quote 'science,' but actually on the other side there needs to be more information about the hundreds of scientists who actually disagree with the projections of climate change."
