Kyle Horan

POSTED: 2:34 PM Jun 18 2012   UPDATED: 4:35 PM May 26 2014

Moving from covering the buffalo herds in South Dakota, to the beautiful coasts of Eastern North Carolina, Kyle Horan is the Weekend Morning Anchor bright and early at 7 a.m. for NewsChannel 12.

Originally from Richmond, Va., Kyle began his career in TV news at the local ABC-Affiliate, WRIC-TV in early 2008. While still attending VCU, he got his foot through the door into broadcasting and hasn’t looked back. Kyle was a production specialist at WRIC for just under three years until moving to the Black Hills of South Dakota, home to the Shrine of Democracy, better known as Mount Rushmore. That’s where his passion for journalism really took off. He spent 2 years working for KNBN in Rapid City South Dakota covering all kinds of Midwestern topics, including a western gunfight re-enactment gone wrong!

However, Kyle is glad to be back on the East Coast in the beautiful south, reporting and anchoring just hours from his home town, and in the vacation destination of choice for the Horan family. When not working, you can find Kyle at the gym, running, or on the beach fishing.

Kyle joined the WCTI team in June of 2012.
