Road to Repeat — Exclusive coverage for the 12s on Q13 FOX, the home of the Seahawks
  • Follow me on:

Troy Diggs is a morning news producer for Q13 FOX News.

Troy wanted to work in television at the age of 4, when he would sit at a drawing table with a clip-on tie and jacket and pretend to be a television anchor. Eventually, he went to Arkansas State University, and became an overnight producer at his hometown television station in Northeast Arkansas, Jonesboro's KAIT.

In 2001, Troy moved to Wichita, Kan. - despite never having been there before the job interview. He spent three years as a producer for "Good Morning Kansas" at KAKE-TV, was nominated twice for Emmy awards, and never got used to calling it the "Ar-Kansas River".

Troy later spent about ten years working for two Kansas City television stations, ending his tenure at Q13 FOX's sister station, WDAF. He moved to Seattle and Q13 FOX in December of 2013, and still marvels at what an amazing trip it's been.

In his spare time, Troy volunteers at Seattle's Bureau of Fearless Ideas, a non-profit in Greenwood that helps children and teens improve their writing and communication skills. He's also an aspiring photographer (you can see his work at amnewsboy.com) and regularly runs 5k races throughout the Pacific Northwest.

He also produces and co-hosts "PriceCast", a fan podcast on "The Price Is Right". (It's available on the iTunes store.) You can also catch him at various venues around town hosting pub quiz events.

Troy lives in Queen Anne, and has yet to master the art of climbing the neighborhood hills without complaining.
