Travis Breese joined KWWL in June, 2019 as our Iowa City-based multimedia journalist for nightly newscasts.
This is Travis’ first full-time job in news after graduating from the University of Missouri in May, 2019.
He is a Southern California native, born in Los Angeles, then moving to San Diego in 2009 for middle and high school. He was drawn to the Midwest for the oldest journalism school in the world at MU. Travis says the change in scenery was driven by Midwest hospitality and the song “Fly Over States” by Jason Aldean.
While Travis reports news for us, his degree is in sports reporting and it’s what drew him to the business in the first place. The first day of March Madness is always his favorite day of the year. His favorite pro teams are the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Clippers. In college football, he supports his alma mater, the Missouri Tigers.
You can find him filling in on the sports desk when Mark Woodley or Rick Coleman need a day off.
Travis is always looking for story ideas and is happy to connect with viewers so feel free to reach out!
