Robbie Reynold is a multi-media journalist for KKTV. He started in January 2019. His career spans four states and many different roles.
Before coming to Colorado Springs, Robbie worked as a morning anchor and reporter for WAFB in Baton Rouge, LA. He covered breaking news every morning before anchoring "The Big Xtra Hour," the final hour of the morning show. During his time in that role, the morning team was nominated for an Emmy and won an Associated Press Award. In the summer of 2016, Robbie covered one of the most tumultuous times in Baton Rouge history. Alton Sterling was shot and killed by a Baton Rouge Police Officer in July, leading to massive protests. Shortly after that, three law enforcement officers were killed in an ambush attack. Then in August, most of the city and surrounding parishes were hit by a flood that damaged hundreds of homes. During the flood, Robbie shot a viral video of David Phung, a volunteer, rescuing a woman from a sinking car. It has more than four million views on YouTube.
Robbie’s first on camera role came in Missoula, MT. He was a crime reporter, weekend news anchor, and fill-in sports/weather anchor for KPAX. His highest profile story was a trial surrounding the death of a German Exchange student who was shot by a homeowner. Robbie covered the entire trial of Markus Kaarma, who was found guilty for the death of Diren Dede.
Robbie started his career in Sacramento, CA. He worked as a sports intern at KCRA. Following his graduation from UC Davis, he worked as a news writer and later producer for KTXL. He produced weekday 6:00 and weekend 10:00 newscasts, and helped with numerous sports projects, including post-game and pre-game shows for the San Francisco 49ers, and the station’s high school football show, The Final Quarter.
Robbie grew up in Granite Bay, CA. His parents, Rey and Carrie, still live there, while his sister Jill lives in Reno, NV. Robbie loves the outdoors and competes in triathlons. He also enjoys cross-country skiing, tennis, hunting, fishing, playing the piano and guitar, and video games. He roots for San Francisco Bay Area sports teams: 49ers, Sharks, Warriors, and Giants.
