Nate is the weekend sports anchor and has been with the KATU News team since July of 2010.
Nate's broadcast career began at KOBI NBC5 TV in Medford in Oregon's Rogue Valley. He anchored, reported and produced the news, weather and sports at various times during his tenure.
Prior to breaking into the news industry, Nate spent several years working in golf at Nike's world campus in Beaverton and in the sports department at The Oregonian newspaper. Nate has always been a rabid sports fan. He started seriously pursuing a career in news after making the final 2% of ESPN's nationwide search for amateur talent for the TV show "Dream Job".
Born in California but raised in Portland, Nate is thrilled to be covering sports at the top station in his hometown.
Off the air, Nate keeps busy in the gym, at the golf course and with his guitars, which are his top non-sports hobby.
