Logan Gay joined the WTHR news team in the summer of 2021 as a multimedia journalist. She likes to call herself a one-woman band because she shoots, writes and edits her own stories.

She graduated from Heritage Christian School in 2011. She then attended Ashland University in Ohio where she graduated with honors. She started her career working as a reporter for Lakeland Public Television in Brainerd Minnesota. While there she enjoyed exploring the “Land of 10,000 Lakes." she worked hard to keep the community informed.

After having enough of the cold, Logan moved to Southern Illinois to work for the NBC affiliate WPSD in Carbondale, Illinois. While there, Logan served as the bureau chief for the station. She was responsible for covering the entire Southern Illinois region by herself.
