Get to know Noah!
Noah Bond is an award-winning journalist who co-anchors KOLO 8 News Now at 5PM, 6:30PM and 11PM.
Noah has reported from the scenes of major news events around the nation. He comes to Reno from KOMO 4 News in Seattle, where he delivered several live reports about the Oso mudslide in Washington. It destroyed several homes and took 43 lives. He says, “It was one of the most devastating disasters I have ever had to report. A mountainside literally gave way and fell on innocent people who just happened to be in the wrong place.”
CNN, Good Morning America and numerous stations across the country have broadcast Noah’s reports, including one about an avalanche rescue caught on tape. Bronson Butler was recording Tyson Black’s snowmobile run as a wave of snow swallowed him ten feet below the surface. Thankfully, Bronson and his friends found Tyson and saved his life even though he was not wearing an avalanche beacon. “I like to call it the miracle caught on tape,” Noah says.
His career started at KDLT in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where he reported from Manchester minutes after an F4 tornado destroyed the community. “I can still remember the survivors sifting through family pictures and documents,” Noah says. Bulldozers pushed the rubble into a pile and it was burned. Today Manchester remains a ghost town.
Noah has also worked in Idaho, Illinois, Kentucky and Utah.
He earned degrees in broadcasting at Brigham Young University in Idaho, where he was named the Division and Language and Letters Man of the Year, and Brigham Young University Utah.
He served a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Carlsbad, California.
