Rene Knott is Alexandra Corey’s co-anchor on Today in St. Louis. He started at 5 On Your Side in 2004 as sports director, and moved to TISL in 2016.

After playing football and earning a degree from Southern Oregon State College, Rene landed his first job at KDRV-TV in Medford, Oregon. After leaving Oregon, he made stops in Mobile, Alabama and Washington D.C. before moving to St. Louis.

Rene says he’s enjoyed every stop along the way, but St. Louis is special.

“We have a sports scene with traditions and expectations,” said Rene. “But most of all, St. Louis has community. I am happy to be here.”
