Collin Talbert

Collin Talbert is the sports director at WQOW News 18. He joined News 18 in June 2018 as our weekend sports anchor as was promoted to sports director in November 2018.

He was previously the sports director at Lakeland PBS in Bemidji, Minnesota for the past year, and prior to that a part-time sports videographer at WKBT in La Crosse, WI for three years.

Collin grew up in a small town in northwestern Illinois called Pearl City. He attended the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse (UWL) where he received his bachelor’s degree in broadcasting and digital media with a minor in sports broadcasting. During his time at UWL, he was the sports director for the campus TV station WMCM, also producing his own weekly sports show “Eagle Nation.”

Being from Illinois, Collin is a huge Chicago Blackhawks and White Sox fan. But don’t worry, he also is a cheesehead, rooting for the Packers every Sunday!  Outside of work, he enjoys being outside, exercising, and of course watching his favorite sports teams.
