Trevor Sochocki joined the 8 On Your Side team in August 2022 as a reporter.
Before that, he was a reporter and weekend morning anchor at WNEM-TV5 in Saginaw and Flint, Michigan. During his two years in the Mitten, Trevor won a Michigan Association of Broadcasters award for his coverage of hunger and food insecurity during the COVID-19 pandemic.
At TV5, Trevor covered the plot (and subsequent trial) of militia members to kidnap Governor Gretchen Whitmer, armed protests at the state capitol, the Flint Water Crisis and the Oxford school shooting. Of course, he also covered his fair share of weather, including multiple tornadoes, blizzards and floods – including the recovery from the historic floods of 2020.
A proud Trojan and alumni of the University of Southern California (Fight On!), Trevor graduated with a degree in Journalism and a minor in International Relations. As a reporter and anchor for Annenberg Media, he covered the death of Kobe Bryant, the college admissions scandal, and the Woolsey Fire. While at school, he interned for the BBC, NBC Los Angeles and CBS News.
Since he was a young kid, Trevor knew he wanted to edit videos and be on the news, and he is so happy to be doing so in the Sunshine State. Feel free to share your recommendations, and if you see him around don’t be afraid to say hi! You can find Trevor on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, or send him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
