Connor Wist is a morning news reporter, native to the great state of Colorado!
Connor grew up in Centennial, graduating from Regis Jesuit High School before earning a Bachelor's Degree from the Missouri School of Journalism in 2014 (M-I-Z!). Throughout her undergraduate years at Mizzou, Connor worked as a reporter in Columbia, Missouri before making the trek to the Pacific Northwest following graduation to work as an anchor, reporter and producer in Medford, Oregon.
In her time on the west coast, Connor covered a wide variety of stories ranging from the Umpqua Community College shooting to the devastating Boles Fire and severe winter weather.
After seven years away from Colorado, Connor returned home in 2017 to join Denver7 as a multimedia journalist. Connor is the oldest of three daughters, and when she's not reporting, you can find her dancing in the crowd at a Red Rocks concert, finding new running trails, or tearing down the slopes on skis.
Connor believes that the best story ideas come from people in the community, so reach out and say hello!
