Hi, I'm Spenser Tilus. I joined the WMDT news team in April of 2014 as the Sports Director. As an avid sports fan, I couldn't be more excited to cover the incredible stories surrounding the athletics in our community!
Before I moved to Salisbury, I spent two years in Fort Collins, Colorado working as a sports reporter and a weekend news anchor. There I had the great opportunity of covering several highly successful teams, including several NCAA tournament qualifiers. I graduated from Chico State with a degree in mass communication and minors in broadcasting and instructional design.
I'm originally from a tiny town of less than 2000 people in northern California called Ferndale. There, the cows had us out numbered 10-1, and the town shut down every time the high school football team was playing. After graduating, I spent two years playing and another as an assistant coach for the men's basketball team at the College of the Redwoods. When I'm not rooting for my old teams, you can usually catch me watching the Lakers, Braves or Colts.
I'm excited to be a part of this community and can't wait to tell some of the fantastic stories you have to offer, so make sure to share them with me on Twitter: @STilusWMDT, Facebook, or email me at spenser_tilus@WMDT.com.
