School: DePaul University
Hometown: Burr Ridge, IL
Yes, my real name is Courtney King and no my parents didn't name me that hoping I would be on TV one day.
Now that we have that out of the way, I am so excited to be here in Columbia! I am a Midwest Girl that grew up in Chicago and graduated from DePaul University. My first TV sports job was at WFFT in Fort Wayne (where I worked with WACH FOX's Tara Petit!) followed by a stint in Milwaukee where I covered the Brewers, Packers, Bucks and Badgers.
Covering the Wisconsin Badgers made me realize that I had a big passion for reporting on college football and basketball. I even got to cover part of the Badgers Final Four run! After my time as a Cheesehead, I freelanced at the Big Ten Network as a Social Media Correspondent for a short time in my home town. But my calling and passion is to be in the field and I couldn't be happier to be here covering the Gamecocks and Tigers.
Feel free to email me any story ideas you may have or if you just to say hi. I'm a Libra which means I love to chat.
