Born and raised in the Orange County/Los Angeles, California area Blake Arthur joined the KFBB news team in August 2013 as the Weekend Sports Anchor/Weekday Sports Reporter.
Sports has always been a passion and mainstay in Blake's life having played football and baseball at Mater Dei High School and then continuing on to play baseball at the collegiate level for two years. After realizing the dream of playing sports for life came to an end, Blake turned to journalism. Originally a print journalism major, Blake decided that switching to broadcast gave him the best opportunity to pursue his career aspiration to work for ESPN, the Los Angeles Lakers, or the Los Angeles Angels.
Blake graduated from California State University, Fullerton with a Bachelor's Degree in Broadcast Journalism. As a Titan, Blake was mentored by great professors and was given ample opportunities to enhance his skills as a broadcast journalist through a wide-range of extracurricular activities. Blake was involved in Titan Internet Radio as well as OC News where he was nominated as "Best Sportscaster." During his time as a student, Blake also completed an internship with KABC 790 Los Angeles, a live radio program where he was able to gain valuable news experience.
Outside of work, Blake enjoys playing sports, watching sports, traveling, cooking, and hanging out with his family and friends. Blake is excited about his new adventure here in Great Falls and looks forward to exploring the beautiful state of Montana.
