Kim King is an Emmy and Edward R. Murrow award-winning reporter for WLOS in Asheville, North Carolina. Her passion is reporting civil rights and civil injustice from stories of racism to murder.
Kim grew up in Manhattan where she attended the all-girls school Chapin. Kim credits Chapin for shaping her into a strong woman. She attributes her tenacity to her mother and calls her mother's common sense pearls of wisdom - “Alyceisms."
In 2015 Kim developed a small bump on her left lower eyelid that seemed like a translucent painless blister. Doctors told Kim the bump was harmless diagnosing her with a clogged oil gland. Over the years, the bump kept coming back. In 2019 the bump was coupled with a thinning eyelid and Kim’s lashes that began twisting and thinning. Still eye doctors repeatedly assured Kim nothing was wrong. In October, after getting diagnosed by Dr. Christina Chloe, Kim underwent extensive Mohs surgery and lid reconstruction in Miami. She is still recovering. Kim has documented her journey: https://www.facebook.com/KimberlyKingReporting https://wlos.com/news/local/news-13s-kimberly-king-shares-her-battle-with-rare-form-of-cancer
