Grand Junction, CO
Simon was born and raised in New York City, where he first began his journalism career as a blog writer and podcast producer. During his time at the University of Miami, Simon anchored and reported for the school's student-run television station, UMTV. He spent four years working for the station's sports show, SportsDesk, and two years as an anchor/reporter for their weekly hard-news show, NewsVision. He also worked as a sports producer for the local FOX station in Miami, WSVN.
Outside the studio, Simon is a passionate New York sports fan. He also loves music, especially classic rock and hip-hop. Simon spends most weekends cheering on the Miami Hurricanes football team, and unfortunately for him, watching the Jets.
