Pinpoint Weather Alert Day on Sunday: Widespread snow

Boris Sanchez anchors FOX31 Denver Nightside at 10 p.m. and Channel 2 News at 7 p.m. on the CW.

Boris joined the FOX31 Denver newsroom in August 2012. Since then, he’s traveled across the state to cover breaking news — including natural disasters, like the major floods of Sep. 2013; along with the passing and implementation of Amendment 64 (recreational marijuana); and high-profile crimes, like the assassination of Colorado Corrections Chief Tom Clements.

Boris has also anchored breaking news coverage of major events, like the Arapahoe High School shooting and the Black Forest Fire, the most destructive wildfire in state history.

Before moving to Colorado, Boris worked at the ABC affiliate in Redding, California, starting in 2010 — covering everything from the state’s struggles to enforce medical marijuana policy, major wildfires, and the lack of resources for mental health patients across Shasta County.

Boris graduated from Syracuse University in 2009, majoring in both Broadcast Journalism and International Relations. While completing his degrees, he interned at WTVJ, the NBC affiliate in his hometown, Miami, FL.

Boris remains a rabid, loyal fan of all South Florida’s sports teams (yes, even the lowly Dolphins), enjoys serial killer documentaries and books about Latin American politics. He also thrives on Cuban food, a hard-fought game of dominoes, and a sunny day at the beach.

If you have a good story, any comments on his work, or just want to chat it up, send Boris an e-mail at Boris.Sanchez@KDVR.com. You can also follow him on Twitter: @Boris_Sanchez
