Nathan O’Neal joined KOB 4 as an investigative reporter in August 2018 after spending four years at the NBC affiliate in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Nathan was the first television reporter on the scene during the Las Vegas mass shooting and was the lead reporter on the investigation during the months that followed. His field reporting during the tragedy was recognized with both a Regional Edward R. Murrow Award and an Emmy Award for breaking news coverage. He also covered the launch of Nevada’s recreational marijuana industry as well as the inaugural season of the Vegas Golden Knights hockey team and their historic run to the Stanley Cup Final.
Nathan started his career in Tucson, Arizona as a multimedia journalist after graduating from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication at Arizona State University (Go Sun Devils!). He earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees while reporting for the school’s award-winning daily newscast – having also launched the Cronkite School’s news bureau in Washington, D.C.
Nathan also produced a documentary about immigration and borderland issues in the Dominican Republic, which was recognized with a Robert F. Kennedy Award in Journalism. He’s also an alum of the Institute on Political Journalism through The Fund for American Studies.
Nathan is no stranger to the southwest. He grew up in the small mining community of Globe, Arizona. Nathan loves exploring the outdoors, hiking, cooking and spending time with his oh-so-needy beagle.
