Karin is the most recognized health reporter on the South Plains. She is a 17-time Anson Jones Award winner, selected by the Texas Medical Association. She has won the prestigious Edward R. Murrow Award four times and earned an Emmy for her documentary on the first South Plains Honor Flight.

Karin is married to Lubbock County Commissioner Bill McCay. They have two children.

Jacob and his wife, McKenzie, live in Greensboro, North Carolina. He is a certified loan officer and she is in law school.

Morgan was a realtor in Lubbock but now lives in Cologne, Germany, with her husband Daniel Olivier, an Agronomist for Bayer Crop Science.   

Karin is also called “Kiki”, especially by her grandchildren Retief and Leizyl.

Karin has published a series of children’s books called Magic Mommy Stories.

Each book began as a gift to her grandchildren, a story in a notebook mailed to them in Germany.    

Today, Retief keeps all the colorful notebooks on a shelf in his room, each an adventure in the Magic Mommy series.
