Ted Skroback

Multi-Media Journalist

I'm very excited to be in the Yakima area. I have loved my experience here so far and hope to build lasting memories through telling your story.

Born and raised in beautiful Tucson, Arizona; I got my dream to attend my hometown school, THE University of Arizona.   I have been in the TV business for seven years now, starting my career in high school. I've worked most of my years freelancing for sports networks in Southern Arizona when they broadcast national sports. In some facet I have worked for ESPN, FOX Sports, MLB Network, NBC Sports, CBS Sports and others. Most recently I was a camera operator for PAC-12 Networks; before that I was at KOLD-TV in Tucson as a Video-journalist for over one year.
