SEATTLE — KING 5 Evening is your source on what to go, see, and do all over Seattle, Tacoma, Puget Sound, and the Northwest.
MEET THE TEAM
I’m a host & reporter for KING 5’s Evening – covering the fun things to do, see, experience, eat and drink in the Pacific Northwest. I also get to put my lifelong obsession with movies and TV to good use by interviewing celebrities for our entertainment segments. Long story short, it’s a dream job!
I came to Evening after spending more than a decade in newsrooms from Yakima to Phoenix. My parents would want me to tell you I’ve received six regional Emmys and an Edward R. Murrow award, and still respond to the nickname “Moo.” I’m also the super-proud mama of a son and daughter who – thanks to my husband – are growing up in a die-hard Husky household.
Lured away from the King5 Sports Department by promises of adventure and free food, I joined “Evening” in July 2005. I am the lead host of the program…just please don’t tell the other hosts I said that. I gravitate toward stories about innovators and inventions, fitness, real estate, and free food.
Prior to Team Evening, I was a sports anchor and reporter for King5, where I got to deliver live, in-game highlights on the Huskytron.” Before that, I helped launch NorthWest Cable News and even got to host the morning show with my wife (we’re still together!) My first television job was in Yakima as sports anchor at KAPP-TV. Much of my time was spent wooing my future wife, former King5 anchor Meg Coyle. She gave in to my awkward advances, so we now live with our two girls, three cats (one of whom is named “Monkey” ‘cuz she was found in the monkey exhibit at the zoo).
My name, Saint, is short for St. George. It’s a family name that would take too long to explain so I often make up stories about how I got my name. My recent favorite is that I was roaming around Vatican City, met the pope, and apparently, he thought I was a pretty cool dude.
I began my reporting career in Charleston, SC and worked for stations in Greenville, SC and Denver, CO before finally coming to my senses and moving here in 1999. Our show celebrates the people and the places around the Northwest. We get to see the very best of what the region offers and share it with our viewers. I especially like to explore the South Sound where I live with my wife and two children. Writing about the number of awards I’ve won is a tricky thing. I find it all so self-serving. All I will say is that I live in a house filled to the rafters with broadcasting trophies and engraved plaques.
When I’m not working I can often be found railfanning with my son, reading a good book or playing my guitar. Anything to avoid yard work.
Hi! I’m Ellen. I’m an Evening multi-platform producer, which means I produce, report, shoot, edit, act, sing, and yes, I do dance as well! I am a septuple threat. I’m originally from Baltimore, Maryland, and went to school at Clemson University in South Carolina.
I love telling people’s stories and exploring all of the amazing parts of Western Washington. I also love food. A lot. When I’m not working at Evening, I enjoy writing and hanging out with my adorable hamster, Peachy Keen.
