Keith Kocinski

Posted on: 10.13.2015 in reporter

Keith discovered his love for television while watching Channel One News as a student at Valley Forge High School in Parma Heights, Ohio. He soon enrolled in a radio and television class before taking part in a variety of professional work while still in school — including hosting an Academy Awards red carpet special for a local TV station. He also worked full-time as an associate producer for Parma Area Community Television near Cleveland, Ohio.

While in college at Baldwin-Wallace, he interned at CBS News hoping to one day return to the big city. Keith spent the last two years working for NBC News 13 in Riverton, Wyoming, learning a lot of about life in the West and Native American culture living near the Wind River Indian Reservation. Keith is proud and excited to work for Channel One News. It fulfills a dream he has had since watching as a high school student. He enjoys journalism because he learns something new every day and constantly meets new and interesting people. He also enjoys the outdoors, playing sports, helping people, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
