Anna King, a correspondent for the Northwest News Network, works from Washington State University’s Tri-Cities campus, covering events in the Mid-Columbia region.  She roves around Washington and Oregon covering nuclear waste cleanup at Hanford, record-breaking wildfires, ranchers bent on taking over federal lands, Northwest tribes, and the complexities of agriculture.  Her reporting has earned her a variety of awards, including WSU’s Woman of the Year in 2016, Journalist of the Year from the Society of Professional Journalists Western Washington Pro Chapter, SPJ’s Sigma Delta Chi medal for breaking news, and two Gracie statues.


King enjoys exploring all the Northwest has to offer, with her husband, Andy, and their Aussie pup, Poa. Trail running, clam digging, and hiking mountain trails are a few of her favorite outdoor activities.
