Bobby Oler is a digital producer for NewsNation.
Before joining the team in 2021, Oler spent nearly a decade as a reporter and anchor in local television news. He started his career in Butte, MT in 2011 covering sports in the mountains. He did sports and news in Springfield, Mo. before most recently serving as a main news co-anchor in Peoria, Il.
When he’s not writing stories for NewsNation, he’s probably walking his dog, Ovi, catching up on exercise at the gym, or wondering how his favorite sports teams (all from Washington, DC) managed to lose their most recent game.
He graduated from American University’s School of Communication in 2011, and grew up in Gaithersburg, Md. He lives in Chicago with his fiancée, Molly.
