Colin is the planning editor at 5 On Your Side in St. Louis, Missouri. He has worked in news for nearly a decade and has lived in St. Louis since the fall of 2002.

As planning editor, Colin works with reporters and digital producers to help set up stories while also planning coverage for major events, such as elections, the Olympics and major trials. His favorite part of his job is helping reporters tell the stories they’re most passionate about. He jokes that he loves doing the jobs that nobody else wants to do.

Colin’s media career started on the radio in St. Louis. He anchored afternoon newscasts and hosted political coverage for KTRS, including the 2016 Presidential Debate in St. Louis. But he has always been more comfortable working behind the scenes, so he transitioned to a role on the assignment desk at 5 On Your Side in 2017.

Born in Houston, Colin moved to Hartford, Connecticut, at a young age but did most of his growing up in Phoenix, Arizona. He studied history at Washington University in St. Louis and now lives in the City of St. Louis with his wife, their daughter and two crazy dogs.
