CLEVELAND — A native of St. Louis, Neil Fischer joined WKYC as a Multiskilled Journalist in April 2022 and is thrilled to be back in the Midwest. He joins the 3News team from KAPP-KVEW in Kennewick (Tri-Cities) Washington, where he spent two years working as an MMJ, reporter and anchor.
Fischer earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications with an emphasis in Broadcasting from Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri, where he hosted a radio show, announced play-by-play for a variety of sports and also played baseball.
He comes from a family of first responders and frontline workers. His father, grandfather, uncle and cousin make up more than 115 years of service with the St. Louis Fire Department, and his sister is a pediatric nurse.
Outside of work, Fischer enjoys golfing, traveling (his mom set a goal of visiting 10 countries by age 18 - and layovers didn’t count), exercising and spending time with family.
