WDAY: The News Leader


Drew Trafton

I joined the WDAY 6 news team in September of 2013 as a weekend anchor and reporter. Previous to coming the F-M area, I worked as a broadcast journalist at the CBS affiliate in Billings, Montana (my hometown). I have worn many hats in my young broadcast career as an anchor, reporter, producer, sports producer and online producer. However, my favorite role to play is a television journalist and storyteller. I enjoy getting out into the community while on the job and seeing new places and meeting new people. When not bringing you the news, I enjoy taking in sports. On the professional level, I root for Seattle teams. As a graduate of the University of Montana, I also enjoys FCS football (but forgive my allegiance). I also enjoy reading, watching movies, good music and the outdoors. If possible, I enjoy those things all the more when I can do them with my wife, Annie (a Minnesota native). If you have a story idea for me, or just want to say hello, you can send me an email at!
