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
– or follow him on Twitter (@NBC10_Connor) –
Facebook (facebook.com/connorcyrus) – and Instagram (@connor.cyrus.news) .
Find Connor at
his Saturday debut and his predicted work schedule – Thursday and Fridays, live
in the morning and at noon; Saturday and Sunday, live in the evening shows.
