Robert Boyd is excited to call Salt Lake City his new home and is looking forward to living “Life Elevated.” He has been a Reporter with Fox 13 since April 2014.
Robert is from Pittsburgh, PA, where he graduated from Duquesne University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications. His career in TV news spans across the country, from KUSI in San Diego, CA, to KDBC in El Paso, TX, to KFSM in Fayetteville, AR, to WTEN in Albany, NY.
Some of his notable news coverage includes the deadly drug wars in Juarez, Mexico and the devastating outbreak of tornadoes in Alabama in 2011.
In 2013 he took a break from reporting to pursue his other passion, which is traveling. He lived and worked in Qinhuangdao, China teaching English to children and adults. Besides learning a whole new culture, the experience allowed him time to explore much of Asia and eat some amazing food.
Robert’s return to journalism was an easy decision. He thrives on telling compelling stories on a daily basis about original people, places and topics. He couldn’t think of a better place to reclaim the notepad and pen than Utah.
Being an outdoor enthusiast he is eager to hike the trails and ski the slopes that have solidified the state as one of the best for playing outside. His other hobbies include cheering for his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers, bocce ball, golfing, bicycling and visiting family.
