Barrett Tryon joined the NBC Montana team in October 2016 as a multimedia journalist.
He was promoted to morning anchor in March 2017, but still gets out of the studio to stand in the snow when he can.
He began his broadcasting career in the early 80s, although not many people saw those first newscasts live from his parents’ back porch in Sarasota, Fla.
Barrett attended college at Drake University in Des Moines, while also working for KCCI-TV. He would later work at CBS News and Fox News Channel, both in New York City, a brief stint in Los Angeles chasing around celebrities, followed by a few years in the Rockies at KRDO-TV in Colorado Springs.
He also worked at WDAF-TV in Kansas City as a technology reporter, KLAS-TV in Las Vegas, and most recently a second stint in Colorado Springs for KKTV-TV.
He was lucky enough to win an Emmy for “Best Newscast” and was voted “Best Twitterer” for 3 years in a row in Colorado Springs by readers of two separate newspapers, the Colorado Springs Independent and Colorado Springs Gazette.
When he’s not online, which is never, he’s probably chasing around his two pups, Cooper & Bentley, googling “Barrett Tryon,” or combing his hair.
