Ian moved to Arkansas in March 2020 and previously worked for KFSM parent company, TEGNA, before joining the 5NEWS sales team. His transition into the news department as a photojournalist in February 2021 eventually allowed him to fulfill a life-long dream of being a reporter in November 2021.
Ian is originally from Arlington, Texas, but grew up in Aurora, Colorado. Ian is an avid sports fan and loves to cheer on the Denver Broncos and Colorado Avalanche.
Ian is a proud graduate of Colorado State University, where he received his bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism. While he is a proud CSU Ram, his grandma, a University of Arkansas graduate, taught him how to properly ‘Call the Hogs’ when he was growing up.
Passionate about telling stories that matter to the community, Ian has found a permanent home in the River Valley and is happy to report on what matters.
Ian and his wife were married in December 2021 and live in Fort Smith with their dog, Momo.
When Ian isn’t reporting or helping the 5NEWS sports team, he can be found exploring Arkansas with his wife or enjoying a Razorback game.
