After 20 years in the business, Greg Copeland still loves his job.
His career path has been different than most, but it brought him to where he has always wanted to be.
As an anchor for KING 5 Morning News, Greg is home.
He has spent his whole life in the Northwest. Greg grew up in Gig Harbor when it was a relatively small town, then went on to graduate from Peninsula High School and WSU in Pullman.
From there, it was off to the races.
Greg started with Northwest Cable News in September of 1996. After a year covering stories in Boise, and another two years working in Portland, Greg moved to the Seattle area to report and anchor on the weekends.
After almost 8 years co-anchoring the weekday mornings on NWCN, Greg now anchors the mornings on KING 5. He says it is a team effort, and there is a great team on-air and behind the scenes.
They work hard every morning to try to share with you the big stories of the day, what’s happening at the moment, and stories that will make you smile.
If Greg is not working, he is probably helping someone landscape or remodel a house. He likes tinkering with cars, playing lumberjack, family time and seeing old friends whenever he can.
He plays as hard as he works and he spends as much time on the water as possible.
