John Boel

John Boel's wins for best news anchor three of the past four years put his career Emmy Award total at 84, but he's even prouder of his wife and two daughters.

John is a 10-time Edward R. Murrow Award winner, but he's even prouder of his efforts helping people in the world of addiction recovery.

When he's not working or speaking, John enjoys fishing and training for triathlons. He just completed his ninth Ironman Triathlon – at the age of 54 John is also an author. His book "On the News, In the News" spent three months on the Louisville best-seller list.

John anchors WAVE 3 News Sunrise weekdays from 4:30 to 7 a.m. and he loves to tell a good story.
