Meet the Team

Connor Hickox

Production Lead

Five­-time employee of the month, Connor Hickox, is a producer, anchor and video guy at Newsy. Before landing at Newsy, Connor worked in TV and film production on everything from sketch comedy to women's MMA. When not in the office or reporting in the field, Connor can be found practicing his mid-range jumper, working Kanye lyrics into conversation and making dad jokes (some recycled from his actual father). Connor also feels uncomfortable talking about himself in the third-person.
