The Aron Bender Podcast

Kirk Hawkins: Anchor, Reporter, Real Estate Agent

July 5th, 2021

Aron Bender talks with KTLA utility player Kirk Hawkins. He reports, anchors, does weather and traffic, and is also a real estate agent! We discuss the wild housing market, and his journey from Agoura Hills, California, to UC Santa Barbara and the local station KCOY, then his "News Across America" tour that took him to KXLY in Spokane, Washington, WFTV in Orlando, Florida, home to KCBS/KCAL, then over to WCCB in Charlotte, North Carolina, and back west to KTLA in 2014. Kirk and I also discussed the impact of the Woolsey Fire and Borderline Bar & Grill Shooting in 2018.
