"I set a goal when I was 6, and here I am," King said on his Facebook page.
King just arrived from WLKY Louisville, Kentucky where he was a noon anchor and a reporter since 2009. He is also from the area.
According to his bio, King's first on air job was as the 10pm anchor for NBC Montana in Bozeman. After that he landed at a station in Jackson, Mississippi and then onto a station in Memphis, Tennessee. He graduated from the University of Louisville.
Clearly King is ready to do some reporting from around the world. His bio says he is fluent in French and working on Russian and Portuguese. Hear that NBC network types?
