Evan Koslof has long thought of D.C. as his "home," despite being born in the Boston area. He went to college in the district, studying Journalism at The George Washington University, and fell in love with the city almost immediately. As his graduation loomed, Evan knew that he would have to go to a small market to begin his career, but he always knew that a return to D.C. was the goal.
When Evan did graduate in 2013, he accepted a job at the beach as the Sussex County Bureau Chief for WBOC News on the Delaware coast. While there, he built a reputation for following hard news, doing countless stories on the politics of the area. Fluent in Spanish, he also did many stories with the growing Hispanic community in Southern Delaware. In 2015, Evan won a regional AP Award for "Best Reporter."
Evan is proud of his time at WBOC, and still enjoys the occasional weekend trip to the beach. Since he's not alone, he says he's glad he knows the back roads.
In August of 2016, Evan traveled to Rio De Janeiro for the Olympic Games. While this trip was primarily for leisure, Evan couldn't help but do some work, sending back a news report, which aired on WBOC News.
In September of 2016, Evan was thrilled to make his return to D.C., as a reporter for WUSA9. When he's not working, Evan can be found eating everything he can get his hands on. He also obsesses over fantasy football, and can often be found at a Buffalo Wild Wings on Sundays, monitoring his four teams. While the Redskins are his favorite NFC team, he admits that he is a hardcore Patriots Fan, and adores Tom Brady.
