Let’s get two things out of the way:
1) Yes. Landon went to Russia.
2) No. Landon was not compromised by the Russian government to influence local news in Reno, Nevada. So don’t call the newsroom with your theories. Yes. People actually call.
Landon Miller joined the KTVN 2 News team in 2014 as a weekend video journalist. Landon worked his way up, joining the 2 News This Morning team as the show’s live reporter. Landon currently anchors 2 News at 5:00, 2 News at 6:30, 2 News at 7:00, and 2 News at 11:00.
Born in Northern Nevada, Landon is proud to call Reno home. He graduated from Wooster High School’s International Baccalaureate Program, and went on to pursue a degree in Journalism from the Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno. During his time at school, Landon won first place in the Hearst Collegiate Journalism awards in television reporting. Landon minored in Spanish.
Landon began his career in broadcasting while he was still in high school, getting a part time job at News Talk 780 KOH. During his time at KOH, Landon covered several high-profile stories including a shooting inside a Carson City IHOP, a shooting at Sparks Middle School, a crash at the Reno Championship Air Races and several wildfires.
Since joining the 2 News team, Landon has won two EMMY awards as a reporter and anchor. At 2 News, Landon has anchored live coverage of wildfires to elections, to other breaking stories. He also reports politics for 2 News by fact checking political advertisements in his ‘Reality Check’ series. Perhaps, though, Landon is most known for his daily segment, ‘Your 2 Cents,’ where viewers call and give their opinions on the day’s news.
If you don’t see him doing the news, it is almost guaranteed you will find Landon drinking a cup of coffee at one of Northern Nevada’s coffee shops, teaching at the Reynolds School of Journalism, speaking to a class, emceeing an event, or listening to Reggaeton.
If you ask Landon what his future looks like, there’s a good chance he’ll say ‘I have no idea.’ However, Landon is passionate about being a friend-like figure for his viewers. Landon is passionate about storytelling, travel, and Spanish. Ideally, he wants to find a combination of all four. So stay tuned.
