Courtney King is the Weekend Anchor at WACH Fox News in Columbia, SC. She is also a producer, reporter, photographer, and the host of Solid Orange, a show dedicated to Clemson Athletics. Solid Orange airs every Wednesday night at 11 PM, immediately following WACH Fox News at 10.
Courtney grew up in Chicago and graduated from DePaul University. Her first TV sports job was at WFFT Local Fox in Fort Wayne, where she was the Weekend Sports Anchor. She then moved to Milwaukee where she covered the Brewers, Packers, Bucks and Badgers.
Covering the Wisconsin Badgers made her realize her big passion for reporting on college football and basketball. After her time as a Cheesehead, she freelanced at the Big Ten Network as a Social Media Correspondent for a short time in her hometown.
Although she hails from the Windy City, Courtney has lived and worked in the Columbia area for more than three years. She now thinks of the Midlands as her home and loves spending time with her two cats, Marie Laveau and Rod Serling. When she's not working, you can catch her running one of the beautiful trails in the Midlands; she's currently training for a half marathon.
