Travis Schlepp re-joins the KEYT-KCOY-KKFX staff as Digital Content Director after a brief sabbatical from the news industry.
Born and raised in the great state of Montana, Travis got his start in the business working at his hometown news station, KTVQ in Billings.
Travis graduated from Billings Skyview High School in 2009, where he participated in multiple clubs and music programs and attempted (unsuccessfully) to make the varsity football team.
After graduating high school he attended Montana State University in Bozeman where he majored in Film and Photography and English. At the end of his college career he returned to Billings where he worked a few odd jobs before finally settling on news as a profession.
While at KTVQ, Travis was a jack of all trades, working as a reporter, producer and photographer. Having spent one too many winters in Montana, Travis, his girlfriend Hannah and their dog Ellie packed up their lives into a trailer and headed for the California Coast. Travis cut his teeth in the California news market working as a digital journalist and assignment desk editor in the KEYT Santa Barbara newsroom.
Travis enjoys camping, fishing and paddleboarding and looks forward to pursuing those hobbies year-round. Travis is deeply passionate about dachshunds, Disneyland, the Beatles and sports teams from Wisconsin -- even though he's never stepped foot in the state.
You can keep up with Travis by following him on Twitter, where he tweets incessantly about the Milwaukee Bucks.
