Read the following from News Director Julie Wolf and tell me this is more than just a lot of corporate feel-good yakety-yak:
“I remember eating cold pizza alone in a rundown apartment wondering: what am I doing with my life?
Again and again, like so many of us in #journalism, I moved to new cities with no support system and just… powered through.
It’s just not enough. And, really, it never was.
So, yes, the #mentor teams we set up at KING 5 Media Group are about skills, accountability, and success.
But it’s also about making sure you can show up at work as your whole self, best self, authentic self with a team cheering you on.
Tonight, Cornelius Hocker met his mentor team of Shanté Sumpter, Swaby Natalie, and Susannah Frame (with us in spirit since a story called her away).
He starts as our new reporter in January, but he got a hug from Roberta Romero, so he’s already officially on the Home Team.
Cornelius Hocker, WRTV Indianapolis, In. Coming to KING 5 in January…Before Indianapolis, Cornelius reported in three other cities: Tulsa, Okla.; Fargo, N.D.; Billings, Mont.

So now King5 is hiring a full-blown Black supremacist and trans activist. Fun times.
When the first trans takes an anchor position, my bet is it will be at KING 5.
