this is me:
I’m Cassidy Quinn, a TV host, reporter, vlogger, tweeter (that’s a thing, right?), sports fan, tech and social media nerd, and occasional traffic reporter.
I’m a West-coaster, from Seattle but now based in Portland, reporting for KGW-TV, Portand’s NBC affiliate. I cover fun events happening around town, anything from a cat lounge (#onlyinPortland) to the weirdest beers ever (have you ever heard of milk wine?! It’s gross). I also host a weekly podcast at KGW called Station Break, where I interview my coworkers to get the inside scoop on TV news.
I spend the rest of my days tweeting, instagramming, facebooking, and making YouTube videos on my own channel. I like to cook, dance, sing, talk about sports, social media, or life hacks (who doesn’t want their life to be a little bit easier?). Sometimes I even attempt (key word: ATTEMPT) to cook…
Before I came to KGW, I was doing freelance reporting and social media work based in Seattle. During that time, I went to London with Virgin Atlantic, covering the NFL International Series as their #RedHotReporter, went to Las Vegas to cover the International Consumer Electronics Show for Car Toys, and made it to the top 50 (out of 3,000) in Jauntaroo’s search for a Chief World Explorer. I also reported at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, worked on the social media team for the London 2010 Summer Olympics, and reported at Super Bowl XLVI.
I moved to the East coast to attend Emerson College (conveniently right before the Sonics left Seattle…), and graduated in May 2011 with degrees in Broadcast Journalism and Acting. After graduating, I spent the next two years working as the Director of Digital Creative & Social Media at Boloco, a 22-unit restaurant chain based in New England. I traveled to the locations that produced and/or inspired Boloco’s menu items – including places as small as Farmville, IL, and as far away as Montevideo, Uruguay and Tokyo, Japan – and created videos telling the story.
I’m all over the web, so if you want to know more about me, or get in contact with me, just click here!
