Biographical Information for Kaitlan Collins

Collins was born in the state of Alabama on April 7, 1992. Prattville High School was where she completed her studies.

In 2014, the Alabama native earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism and political science from the University of Alabama.

At the age of 25, I began working for CNN

Collins began her career as a blogger and freelance writer. She went on to work for The Daily Caller, where she covered the 2016 presidential campaign. Many people were impressed by her coverage. So much so that in 2017, she was promoted to White House correspondent for Tucker Carlson’s website.

She didn’t stay on the site for long, though. In June 2017, she started a new position as a White House reporter at CNN.

Collins has broken multiple stories in her coverage of the Trump White House since joining the network at the age of 25. As a chief White House journalist, she also traveled to Asia with Trump to cover stories.

In 2018, 2019, and even 2020, she was named to Mediaite’s list of the 50 Most Influential People in News Media.

Salary and Net Worth

The CNN Network’s main White House correspondent is an Alabama native. A CNN correspondent’s compensation averages around $136,275, according to Glassdoor.

Collins surely earns money, a base salary, and bonuses as the chief White House correspondent. Her net worth, though, is still being assessed.

However, it is widely speculated on the internet that her net worth is in the millions of dollars.

Will Douglas is married, what is his relationship status?

Collins was dating Will Douglas, the founder of Crimson Care Pharmacy Group and a pharmacist. They began dating in 2015 and publicized their romance on their social media platforms.

The couple went on a wonderful trip with their close friends in May 2016, and they attended a wedding ceremony the following month.

In addition, in July 2016, the two went on a tour of the Nationals Park in Ballpark, Washington, D.C. In November 2016, they attended a wedding ceremony at Gin Creek Plantation.

Collins had a tight bond with her partner’s family, particularly his brother Tanner Pierce and his mother Melinda Douglas. They went on outings together and shared lunches.

Their romance, however, terminated in 2017. Collins didn’t reveal the split, but she did erase all of her photos with her boyfriend from Instagram.

She hasn’t said anything about her relationship status since then. Her Instagram and Twitter accounts barely hint at her work ethic.
