New addition to NBC10 – Connor Cyrus

Connor Cyrus will soon be a familiar name in Rhode Island. His first reporting day, on air, should be Saturday. This follows a training time at NBC10, Connor’s new broadcast home. Connor’s already been active introducing himself on Twitter to the greater Rhode Island market.

He says he is thrilled to be a part of the WJAR team as their newest Multimedia journalist. Connor comes to WJAR from Burlington, VT, where he was a local news reporter for WCAX – Channel 3 for more than 2 years. He was the morning reporter and brought a fresh take to the morning show, mixing both fun feature stories and policy stories that impacted the region. Previously, his first reporting job was in Presque Isle, ME. 

Connor graduated from Lyndon State College, with a degree in Electronic Journalism Arts. During his time at Lyndon State, Connor received multiple awards, including receiving an honorable mention for an Emmy Award. 

When Connor isn’t working you can find him exploring the region, checking out restaurants, and staying active in the outdoors. He’s always looking for adventures and is excited that Southern New England is a place for him to call home.

Connor prioritizes building community and local knowledge so he can bring to life the stories that matter. He does this by highlighting what works in communities and holding people accountable by asking the difficult questions. 

Connor suggests if you have stories or issues you would like him to explore, or just want to say “Hi,” just email (cmcyrus@sbgtv.com) – or follow him on Twitter (@NBC10_Connor) – Facebook (facebook.com/connorcyrus) – and Instagram (@connor.cyrus.news) .
