Lincoln joined the KATU news team in May 2011. He co-anchors KATU First News at 4 p.m. with Deb Knapp.

He comes to Portland from Boise, Idaho, where he worked as morning anchor at KIVI. Prior to that he was the main evening anchor at KTVM in Bozeman, Montana. Living and working in Portland has always been a goal for him and he's thrilled to finally plant his feet in the Pacific Northwest.

Originally from Salt Lake City, Lincoln graduated from the University of Utah in 2001 with a degree in broadcast journalism. After graduation he took a four year break from "real life." He worked as a tour bus driver and bellman in Montana's Glacier National Park for four summers. In the winters, he took different seasonal positions in Winter Park, Colorado and Big Sky, Montana. He also spent six months living and working in Mt. Cook National Park on New Zealand's south island.

Whether it's snowboarding in the winter or hiking and backpacking in the summer, Lincoln can usually be found in the Great Outdoors when he's not working.
