About Nick

“Tell me a fact and I’ll learn. Tell me a truth and I’ll believe. But tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever.” – Ed Sabol, NFL Films founder
Nick King is a sports reporter and sports anchor in Fresno, CA. He grew up dreaming of becoming a SportsCenter anchor (talk about sports and try to be witty, funny – yes, please). Between college at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, then working in Virginia, Missouri, and now California, Nick’s lived a version of that dream. Covering athletes of all ages and skill levels, in just about every sport imaginable, he’s been to hundreds of memorable games, and talked about them on TV. But the truly unforgettable days of the last decade center around telling the stories of people the public might otherwise never know about.
There was the Northern California EMMY nomination for a documentary about an amazing young blind girl running on her elementary school cross-country team; an Edward R. Murrow sports reporting award for a feature on a high schooler who fought Cystic Fibrosis by surfing as often as possible; plus the 160 lb. dad pushing his 260 lb. autistic son in the Boston Marathon; the wheelchair basketball player who earned a college scholarship; the “special” Super Fans at high school football games, and many, many more. 
Nick also started a special series in 2016 called, “In Your Backyard,” where he showcases outdoor adventure opportunities in Central California – from the Pacific Ocean, to the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and everywhere in between. This started because as a transplant, Nick felt like too many locals didn’t fully realize, or take advantage of the beauty they have to close to home. People come from all over the world to drive Highway 1 through Big Sur, or to walk through Yosemite, one of the crown jewels of the National Park System, and these magical places are only a few hours from Fresno.
So, if Nick’s not watching a game, playing basketball or reading a book, he’s probably road tripping somewhere, looking for the next story.
