Kim Block has been at the News 13 6 p.m. anchor desk for 37 years. In addition, she co-anchors the 5pm, 5:30pm and 11pm newscasts.

Kim went to Indiana University, where she received a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism and Spanish.

Kim specializes in medical/health reporting, and is the proud recipient of two New England Emmy awards for her series "The China Journey," and "Miracle in Maine."

Kim has also received two Edward R. Murrow awards and numerous Associated Press and Maine Association of Broadcaster awards.

Kim was the first woman inducted into the Maine Broadcasting Hall of Fame in 2002, and is the recipient of the University of New England Deborah Morton Award and the YWCA's "Women of Achievement" award.

She is the recipient of the 2017 Girl Scouts of Maine "Distinguished Woman of the Year" award.

She was also recognized as the Cromwell Center's "Person of the Year" in 2012 for her years of community service in Maine.

Along the way, Kim has told the stories of Maine - a place that captured her heart instantly, when she moved here from her original home, the Washington, D.C. area. "I can't think of a better place to have begun a career - and to continue with one," says Kim. "Maine has been both professionally challenging and personally rewarding - it is a gem of a state with many significant news stories and a lifestyle that can't be beat."

Kim reports on people and organizations that are "Making a Difference," in her weekly franchise on CBS 13 News at 5:30pm.

Kim is dedicated to community service, having worked with numerous organizations over the years, including the Barbara Bush Children's Hospital, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Cancer Community Center, Maine Cancer Foundation, Sexual Assault Response Services of Southern Maine and Girl Scouts of Maine.

Kim also served as honorary chair of the American Heart Association's "Go Red for Women" campaign in Maine.

In her spare time, you'll find her on a yoga mat, playing music, reading, sailing, boating and writing - or watching Roger Federer play tennis or Tom Brady play football.

Her greatest joy comes from her family - her husband, Bob, and adult children, Miles, 23 and Molly, 19.
