Heather King always knew she wanted to be a journalist and tell stories, but she didn't figure out the TV part of it until high school. Heather says, "don't laugh, but a few years on the Glenbard West speech team made the difference." So, she left the Chicago suburb where she grew up for the heart of the Midwest and headed to the University of Missouri.
Heather worked as a reporter and anchor at KOMU-TV, the NBC affiliate in Columbia, Missouri. The minute she felt the buzz and energy of an actual newsroom, she knew she picked the right career. Heather's reporting has been recognized by the Associated Press, the Radio and Television News Directors Association, the Society of Professional Journalists and the Society of Environmental Journalists.
Heather is the anchor and executive producer of WITN News at Sunrise and also reports. She's been fascinated by morning news since an internship with a Chicago television station. Heather will admit she hasn't always been a morning person, but she says it's easy to wake up well before the sun when you love your job!
Getting into work early often means getting out of work early in the day. That schedule has allowed Heather to enjoy quality time with her daughters each afternoon. She is also a member of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Pitt County Corporate Board and is on the committee that plans the annual MS Walk in Greenville.
