A belated welcome home to new KMOV (Channel 4) reporter Julia Avery.
Avery, a St. Charles West High grad and a former University of Missouri cheerleader, has joined the roster of morning reporters at the station.
Arriving the week before Christmas, the 28-year-old Avery returns home after a four-year reporting stint in Redding, California.
Describing herself as a "die-hard Cardinals fan," Avery said she spends her free time camping, skiing and rock climbing.
