Linzi Sheldon anchors KIRO 7 News Saturday and Sunday evenings and is a general assignment and investigative reporter.
She joined KIRO-TV in August of 2013 and is excited to be part of the team. Linzi was born in Richmond, British Columbia and grew up in the Okanagan Valley, so she's also thrilled to be back home in the Pacific Northwest.
Before coming to Seattle, Linzi reported for WSOC-TV in Charlotte, N.C., where she covered in-depth the controversial fight for control of Charlotte-Douglas International Airport. She also broke the story that a highly-paid city tourism CEO was continuing to receive $20,000 a month even after he was replaced. While at WSOC-TV, Linzi covered the Democratic National Convention, the John Edwards federal criminal trial, and Hurricane Irene making landfall on the North Carolina coast.
Prior to WSOC-TV, Linzi worked as a reporter for WHEC-TV in Rochester, N.Y. She graduated magna cum laude from Dartmouth College with a B.A. in Creative Writing and with honors from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism with a Master of Science in Journalism.
In her free time, Linzi enjoys running, playing tennis, traveling, and searching for the perfect meal.
After a massive fire destroyed the nearly century-old Seven Gables Theatre on Dec. 24, 2020, KIRO 7 asked the city of Seattle about its response to an online complaint about smoke coming out of the building on Dec. 9.
