William Pitts joined KREM 2 News in September of 2007 as a general assignment reporter.
Before coming to Spokane, William was a reporter for KEPR in Pasco, WA. He's also worked as a field producer and assignment editor for KPNX in Phoenix, AZ.
William grew up in Arizona, where he's been working in journalism most of his life. His first reporting job came a few months after he got his driver's license at age 16. He worked for a small newspaper during high school and knew that journalism was the job for him. He graduated from Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism in 2005 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, a minor in Political Science and a certificate in International Relations. While at ASU William won more collegiate journalism awards than any other student in the school's history, including a national championship in the Hearst Journalism Awards, called the Pulitzers of college journalism.
Over the years William has interviewed everyone from popular music groups to presidential candidates. He's ridden along on a high altitude-low opening (HALO) parachute jump with the Oregon National Guard, covered the 2004 presidential debates and even taped a white-knuckle story in the cockpit of a stunt plane at 8,000 feet.
When he's not on the air, you can find William exploring the northwest, skiing every chance he gets and looking for the greatest restaurants in Spokane.
