Nolan Knight joined the WNCT 9 on your side news team in July of 2019.

He is currently the Weekend Sports Anchor for 9 On Your Side.

While working in Southern West Virginia he covered events such as the Houston Texans Training Camp, A Military Tribute at the Greenbrier and Big-12 athletics.  

Nolan is a graduate of Virginia Tech where he received a Bachelors Degree in Multimedia Journalism with a Cognate in Sports Marketing and a minor in Sociology. 

While he was a student at Virginia Tech Nolan was involved in multiple student clubs and organizations including the school’s newspaper the Collegiate Times, the school’s student radio station WUVT and IMG College Group where he was the lead play-by-play broadcaster on ESPN 3 and ACC Network broadcasts of the school’s Olympic sports coverage.

During his senior year, he was a part-time sports anchor for WVVA in Bluefield. 

Nolan also spent time calling games in summer collegiate baseball leagues in the Northwoods League as the voice of the Green Bay Bullfrogs for the summer of 2018 and time in the Coastal Plains League as the voice of the Petersburg Generals in 2017. 

Nolan was a three-sport athlete in high school and fell in love with the grit, competition, and storylines that follow athletics.

When he’s not in the studio you can probably find Nolan on the golf course or the basketball court.

He’s thrilled to be working in eastern North Carolina and love the sports culture here.
