The Cowardly Lion is proud to call the Emerald City home! He was born and raised in the Haunted Forest, and now, he’s an anchor at News 5.

Lion attended college at Emerald State majoring in Journalism, then worked at stations all over Oz.

When a sports reporting position opened up at his hometown station, he jumped at the chance to come home and cover his hometown team.

He’s served in several positions since then, including a features reporter, investigative reporter and fill-in host for News 5’s weekend gardening show. Now, he’s proud to be one of New 5’s lead anchors.
