Evening News Anchor
Cody Boyer comes to WLUC TV6 from Bozeman, Montana, one of the fastest growing cities in the United States and located in the Gallatin Valley in Gallatin County, which borders Yellowstone National Park. However, Cody is a proud Michigander, born and raised in the Lower Peninsula in Gladwin County and a 2014 graduate of Northern Michigan University.
Cody was the senior reporter and evening anchor at KBZK / KXLF in Bozeman, Montana’s News Leader. For nearly three years, he sat alongside journalism greats like Donna Kelley and Chet Layman at the anchor desk while also leading the helm in the field, covering a wide arrange of topics and accruing several top awards, including two E.B. Craney Awards for breaking and hard news coverage and being voted “Bozeman’s Best Anchor” alongside Donna and Chet in 2020 and 2021. In 2020, he also joined the list of journalists in the historical coverage of Ted Kaczinski, also known as “The Unabomber,” being the first reporter to interview Ed Sprout, the semi-truck driver who avoided 25-plus years of cameras after hauling the Unabomber’s cabin from Montana to California.
Prior to KBZK, Cody worked as a reporter and anchor at 9&10 News in Cadillac, MI, covering several counties and telling hundreds of stories across Michigan’s Northern Lower Peninsula. There, he was recognized with several Michigan Association of Broadcaster accolades for his coverage and attention to community life and events.
Then back at NMU, Cody was swayed into journalism through the amazing opportunities at WNMU TV13’s “Public Eye News” and The North Wind campus newspaper, where he worked as an anchor/producer/director at PEN and, at The North Wind, the sports editor before becoming the editor-in-chief in 2014.
All of that aside, Cody was brought back to Northern Michigan for a primary reason: it’s home. Cody loves everything to do with U.P., from hiking and fishing to remembering jumping off of Black Rocks during his university years. He’s trading the Bridger Mountains of Gallatin County for Sugarloaf and Hogsback, knowing that while they may not be as tall that no other landscape in the world has Lake Superior as a backdrop.
