Bo Sykes joined the news team at the Charlottesville Newsplex in June 2005 and currently anchors Good Morning Charlottesville and CBS19 News at Noon.
Before stepping in front of the camera in Charlottesville, Bo spent more than 2 years working behind the scenes as an assignment editor at WFTV-TV in Orlando, Fla.
A Florida native, Bo quickly developed an interest in writing and telling stories. He got his start in broadcasting while still in middle school. Bo anchored and reported through his senior year of college, including a brief stint as weatherman.
Bo graduated from the University of Central Florida with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. There, he anchored and reported for a weekly show called UCF Knightly News.
The 2004 hurricane season will always be a memorable time for Bo. With four hurricanes devastating the state, he spent several days and nights at the station in Orlando and even slept on the floor in a cubicle at the station during the middle of one of the storms.
Bo loves talking to viewers and telling their stories. In his spare time, he enjoys relaxing with family and friends, skiing, swimming and following our area’s current events.
