Byron Tollefson joined KTTC in July 2019 as a Morning Anchor.
Boston has always been his home, but he has a family connection to Minnesota. His father grew up in the Minneapolis area.
Byron graduated from Syracuse University in May of 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in Broadcast Journalism. While at SU, he worked as a reporter for CitrusTV. He also covered local and national elections as a political correspondent.
In the Spring of 2018, Byron interned for NBC Nightly News in Los Angeles while taking classes. He worked alongside national correspondents and producers, helping with research, writing, and field production.
That summer, he interned at NBC10 Boston. He wrote stories for air, interviewed subjects on assignment, and assisted photographers out in the field.
Byron is very happy to call Rochester home. In his free time, you can find him running, playing basketball or watching sports. Please say hi if you see him around town!
