Todd Connor is back at home in Indiana as co-anchor of the 5, 6, 7 and 11 p.m. newscasts.
Todd returns to the Hoosier state, after spending a year as an anchor/correspondent for ABC News in New York. During his tenure, he appeared on World News Now and Good Morning America Weekend. Prior to that, Todd worked for 12 years at FOX News Channel in New York, where he was one of the original anchors of the cable network.
Before Todd headed to the East Coast, he spent many years working in South Bend (WSBT), Terre Haute (WTHI) and Louisville, Ky. (WLKY). He started his news career at radio stations in Illinois, which is where he was born and raised.
"I've covered so many historic events and breaking news stories it's hard to keep track of them. Many I monitored from the anchor desk, but the most memorable ones seem to be those I covered on location," Todd said.
"Every American likely remembers where they were on 9-11. I had just finished walking my dog and returned to my Manhattan apartment to get ready for work when I turned on my TV and saw smoke billowing from the North Tower of the World Trade Center. I raced to the subway so I could help in our coverage. The days that followed are almost a blur, but I'll never forget what I witnessed. After 9-11, my passport quickly filled up with trips to the Middle East for the War in Iraq," he said.
"Other stories I've covered over the years include the Lehman Brothers Collapse, Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, London Bus/Subway Bombings, Pope John Paul II, MLB Steroid Scandal, Anna Nicole Smith, Duke LaCrosse Rape Case, NIU Campus Shooting, Erie Pizza Bomber, Quecreek Mine Rescue, Runaway Bride, Princess Diana's Crash, numerous hurricanes, political stories and thousands of others. I think I've now visited all 50 states," Todd said.
"While every reporter likes covering the big stories, I enjoy my work most when I feel I've made a positive change in someone's life. And that's what I'll continue to strive for in Central Indiana," he said.
Todd likes to spend his spare time playing or watching sports or hanging out by the water/beach. He's a big St. Louis Cardinals fan and roots for the Colts and Pacers. The Indy 500 and Kentucky Derby are his favorite races, but he watches a lot of NASCAR. But, most of all, Todd enjoys watching his two young children experience life. He and his wife, an Indiana native, look forward to spending more time with their families and reconnecting with old friends. Todd and his family live in Indianapolis with their rescued greyhound, Shiraz.
Todd would love to hear from you, whether it's a story idea or just a note to say hi.
