Catherine Merri "Katie" Pavlich (born July 10, 1988)[2][3] is an American conservative commentator and author.[4]

Early life and education[edit]

Pavlich was born in Arizona.[5] A member of the Daughters of the American Revolution,[6] she was raised in the mountainous areas of northern Arizona and developed interests in river rafting and hunting and a love of the outdoors from her father. Pavlich graduated from Sinagua High School in Flagstaff; she played volleyball and basketball in high school.[7][8][9][10] In 2010, Pavlich earned a bachelor of arts degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Arizona.[1]


After completing her degree in 2010, Pavlich moved to the Washington, D.C., area and became news editor for Townhall.com, a contributing editor to Townhall Magazine,[11] and a Fox News contributor.[1] In the summer of 2013, she became an alternate co-host for The Five. She is also a National Review Washington Fellow.[12] Pavlich has appeared on Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, and Fox Business, in addition to numerous national and local radio shows.

Pavlich was named Blogger of the Year at CPAC 2013[13] for her coverage of the 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 awarded Woman of the Year in 2014 and a 2013 Conservative Leadership Award from the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute.[14]

In August 2017, Pavlich was retweeted by President Trump. Her tweet incorrectly asserted that President Obama had pardoned Chelsea Manning and Oscar López Rivera, when Obama had, in fact, commuted their sentences.[15]
