Conor McCue joined the LEX 18 news team in June 2016 as a general assignment reporter. He is a proud Colorado native who is very excited to explore the Bluegrass and tell the stories that really matter.
After graduating from the University of Colorado with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and emphasis on Integrative Physiology (he is well aware of how strange that combination is), Conor moved all the way across the country to report for WMBF News in sunny Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
While in Myrtle Beach, Conor covered many major local, regional and national stories. Conor reported on historic flooding that left much of the Palmetto State underwater for weeks, the shooting at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, and the decision to take down the Confederate flag from the statehouse grounds.
Conor takes the most pride in his in-depth reporting of local issues facing the community he lives in. While in Myrtle Beach, Conor was the first to report on a veteran police detective accused of sexually assaulting rape victims he was charged to protect. He also investigated everything from a major energy company’s alleged contaminating of a town’s water to problems with the questionable conditions a semi-professional football team was playing in.
Outside of work, Conor is your typical Coloradan. He loves to travel, hike, and explore new breweries. He’s a lifetime hockey player who plays on a local rec team. Conor is also a die-hard fan of the Colorado Buffaloes. If you can talk CU sports with him, you’ll immediately become his best friend.
Conor is very passionate about covering the issues that matter to the local community. You can always call, email, Tweet, or Facebook him with anything that you feel should be a story.
