SEATTLE — Hey there!
My name is Conner Board and I am a Multi-Skilled Journalist/Reporter with KING 5. I joined the team in October of 2022 and could not be more thrilled to call Seattle my new home.
Both of my parents are from Washington and I have a lot of family throughout the Seattle area and across the state! I was born in Snohomish County, but most of my childhood was spent in Reno, Nevada. I have many memories here in Western Washington and am very grateful for the chance to make more. I feel like I am back to my roots!
Prior to coming to KING 5 I was a news reporter and anchor at multiple local news stations, including: KVUE in Austin, Texas; WZDX in Huntsville, Alabama; and KPVI in Pocatello, Idaho.
I graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with a Bachelor’s in Journalism and a Minor in Music. During college I worked in radio for Cumulus Media and interned for KTVN in Reno, Nevada and interned for a country music publication in Nashville, Tennessee. I am currently getting my Master’s in Legal Studies from the University of Illinois, Springfield.
In my free time I enjoy giving back to my community. I have volunteered with various organizations throughout the years that support people with special needs and children in foster care. I also am a lover of all things outdoors and enjoy spending my time in the mountains! I can usually be found hiking, playing tennis, or playing music.
Have a story idea or a favorite hiking trail? Send it my way!
