KETV NewsWatch 7 weekend sports anchor Thor Tripp first became a part of the Cornhuskers media in the summer of 2008. Bo Pelini then followed suit, and a new era of Nebraska football was born.
Thor has called Nebraska his home for the past four years, but he is no stranger to the Midwest, growing up in Minnesota and playing baseball at Division II Augustana College in Sioux Falls, S.D.
After joining the KETV NewsWatch 7 Sports team in July 2011, Thor moved to Omaha and says he’s been greeted with open arms and TV sets.
“The best part of this job is being out of the office and talking to people around the area. That’s what makes every game fun to cover."
Thor’s work has been voted First Place in the Great Plains region several times by the Associated Press, and he is thrilled to be part of the top-rated news team in Nebraska.
His life was also documented on the big screen with the release of “Thor” in 2011, and yes, he does carry his hammer to every game, so make way!
Thor feels lucky to be covering sports for a living and tries to bring a smile to your living room every night. He’s always looking for a story idea or a laugh, so don’t be afraid to say hello!
