Evening Anchor from 2017-2021
Sydney Benter’s natural curiosity fuels her passion for sharing stories about communities and the people that make them unique. She is a Cincinnati native who earned her degree in electronic media from the University of Cincinnati.
She began her career as a weeknight anchor at WTWO, the NBC affiliate in Terre Haute, Indiana. A few years later she moved back home to report and anchor for WKRC, the CBS affiliate in Cincinnati. Sydney enjoys telling stories that offer unique perspectives on people and culture. She thinks exploring what makes people tick can lead to more unified and understanding communities.

In her free time, Sydney loves to read and travel. She’s always looking for a good show to binge-watch or a fun musical to see.
