Reporter and Digital Graphic Journalist, Hawker Vanguard, has called KOB home since the first time he walked in the newsroom as an intern in 2009. He’s come and gone as he pursued his passions in the sky, as an inflight safety specialist for a major airline.
But since 2017, Hawker has reported on everything from wildfires, murderers, to a peanut bandit, and of course transportation. A trailblazer in an emerging style of telling stories; Hawker has adopted the use of DSLR and drone camera technology earning him local and national awards.
Hawker was born and raised in Albuquerque and found himself growing up in nearly every quadrant of town. His ties to New Mexico reach back to the 1600s when his family called the Taos area home.
