Natalie Hee is thrilled to join FOX 26 News as a reporter in her hometown. Before starting at FOX 26, Natalie was a reporter at KIAH-TV, the CW affiliate in Houston. She has also reported at WDSU-TV, the NBC affiliate in New Orleans, and KXAN-TV, the NBC affiliate in Austin, Texas, where she began her news career. Natalie has covered a number of breaking news and weather stories including the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, along with the controversial shooting deaths of Alton Sterling and former NFL players Will Smith and Joe McKnight. Like many families in Houston, Natalie is an "oil baby." Born in Malaysia to a family of ex-pats, she spent majority of her childhood moving around every three years, before her family settled in The Woodlands in 2003. She’s a graduate of The John Cooper School in The Woodlands and an alumna of The University of Texas at Austin. Natalie is a proud Longhorn and honorary LSU Tigers fan -- Hook 'em Horns and Geaux Tigers! Her family’s nomadic lifestyle has also given Natalie the opportunity to travel to countries all across the world. She dreams to one day step foot on all seven continents -- including Antarctica! When she’s not working or traveling, Natalie enjoys perusing for new restaurants and cuisines, listening to live music, dancing, karaokeing, shopping, playing volleyball, binge-watching TV shows and trying to be artsy. Natalie is a member of the Asian American Journalists Association and the Texas Exes Houston Chapter. Natalie looks forward to meeting and serving the great people of Houston.
