Cassidy Quinn reports on events going on around town on KGW News at 4 and Live at 7. She is a video blogger who loves sports, travel, and technology, and is a bit addicted to social media.
Before coming to KGW, Cassidy lived in Seattle, doing freelance reporting and social media for various companies. Before that, she was in Boston for two years, working as the Director of Digital Creative & Social Media for Boloco, a New England restaurant chain. At Boloco, she traveled around the country and the world, to places like Uruguay and Tokyo, to create videos about the origin of the restaurant's menu items and ingredients.
Her love of travel has also taken her to two Olympic Games. She reported for the Olympic News Service at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games, and worked for the Website & New Media team at the London 2012 Summer Games (where she lived in a tent for a month). She's a bit of an Olympics junkie - if the Games are on, she's live-tweeting it... She also vlogged at Super Bowl XLV, and reported at Super Bowl XLVI.
Cassidy attended Emerson College in Boston, where she majored in Broadcast Journalism and Acting. She is also a wakeboarder, snowboarder, foodie (tweet her which restaurants she should try in Portland!), and music fan.
