Todd Boatwright has always had a fixation with television. When he watched television as a youngster, he was always trying to figure out how they put the show together rather than paying attention to the content.
Since those days, Todd has developed into an established morning anchor at Spectrum News. Todd graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Radio-Television-Film. While studying there, he had an internship at KDFW-TV in Dallas.
He landed his first on-camera gig as a weekend anchor/weekday reporter at KAVU (ABC) in Victoria. He spent 15 months there and then continued to KETK (NBC) in Tyler, where he spent five years as the Longview bureau chief, weekend anchor and reporter.
In 2000, Todd covered the Republican and Democratic Conventions, both in Philadelphia and Chicago. He has interviewed President Bill Clinton.
He was nominated for a Texas Katy Award for his coverage of a South Texas tornado.
Todd says the story he'll remember covering the most is the Sept. 11 attacks. Todd was on the air for hours as the first plane hit the World Trade Center towers in 2001.
Todd loves anything having to do with old movies and history. When he's not surfing between CNN, the History Channel or TCM, you'll find him in the kitchen.
One of Todd's passions is gourmet cooking. He's also a self-proclaimed kitchen gadget fanatic.
