Drew Bollea joined the CBS13 team as a reporter in June 2016. New to California, Drew is excited to continue telling stories and exploring all the Central Valley has to offer.

A Northern Virginia native, Drew attended college at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio where he majored in broadcast journalism. He was also a member of the Redhawk swim team, and water polo team.

Before coming to Sacramento, Drew worked at WTVC in Chattanooga, Tennessee where he spent three years as a morning anchor and reporter for Good Morning Chattanooga. While in the Scenic City, Drew covered a variety of topics including severe weather, gang violence, and city government. The most memorable day on the job was July 16th, 2015 when four U.S. Marines and a U.S. Sailor were shot and killed inside an Army Reserve Center during a domestic terrorist attack. Drew was the first reporter on the scene and spent the next 48 hours covering the tragic details. The story earned national coverage for several weeks.

Prior to working in Chattanooga, Drew’s first reporting gig was at a start-up television station in Warner Robins, Georgia. He produced and anchored a nightly newscast. He covered everything from Robins Air Force Base to the Little League World Series. He also did play-by-play for the Division I Mercer Bears basketball team.

When he’s not busy looking for Sacramento’s next story to tell, you can find Drew spending time with his wife, Lindsay, and their dog, Rio. He enjoys traveling to new places, checking out local flavor, hitting the links and competing in triathlons (he is an Ironman 70.3 finisher). He also looks forward to trips back east to visit family and friends.

Drew is excited to be part of the Sacramento community and looks forward to getting to know the region. If you have a story idea, he’d love to hear from you.
