Troy Lynch became a part of the Fox16 sports team in March 2020, taking on the role of the weekend anchor and reporter. Growing up in the sunny beaches of southern California, Troy’s childhood was filled with volleyball and endless beach days. Despite his beachside upbringing, he chose a different path and attended the Walter Cronkite School at Arizona State University, where he earned a degree in sports journalism.
Troy’s talent in sports broadcasting shone through during his college years. He was named one of the top 12 collegiate sportscasters in the country for two consecutive years by the STAA (Sportscasters Talent Agency of America). Additionally, he received a national BEA award for his story titled ‘Turning Tragedy to Triumph.’ His time in college allowed him to cover a wide array of sporting events, including MLB Spring Training, the NHL, NFL, NBA, the Waste Management Open, and Arizona State sports. He even worked as the in-game host for Arizona State men’s and women’s basketball and baseball for two seasons.
Just five days after graduating from college, Troy embarked on his professional journey as the sports director at KREX 5 News in Grand Junction, Colorado. During his time there, he covered the Denver Broncos, the Winter X-Games, minor league baseball, Colorado Mesa University, and local high school sports. An interesting tidbit about Troy is that he went viral on the internet when children swarmed him during a live shot at a minor league All-Star game. The video garnered millions of views and even led to an interview on ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show.’
While in Colorado, Troy extended his reach to Colorado Springs, where he took on the role of in-game host for Air Force football in 2019. The Falcons finished the season as the No. 22 team in the country during his tenure.
In his leisure time, Troy is a man of diverse interests. He enjoys working out, embarking on adventures, playing the piano, watching movies, telling jokes, and indulging in his love for food.
