Preston Phillips

Prior to his move to mornings, Preston anchored the CBS5 weekend evening newscasts and provided live, breaking news and investigative reports three nights a week. Preston landed in Phoenix in December of 2015 from San Diego, where he anchored weekend evenings and reported for ABC affiliate, KGTV. While there, he and his weekend team won the regional Emmy Award for "Best Weekend Evening Newscast," three years in a row. In 2015, Preston received his third Emmy nomination for "Best Anchor" and a nomination for breaking/spot news coverage, in which he provided live, breaking news reports from the front lines of what became known as San Diego's May Firestorm. Since the rise of ISIS, Preston has provided in-depth investigative, breaking and exclusive news reports on the terror group's impact on Middle Eastern Christians living in San Diego and on their families living in Iraq. In 2010, Preston was the first journalist to break the news on-air regarding the disappearance and massive search effort underway for a missing San Diego teen, who would turn out to be Chelsea King. Preston turned investigative and breaking news reports in the days leading up to and following the arrest and sentencing of her killer, John Gardner. Preston anchored and reported at NBC affiliate, KSEE, in Fresno, California before his move to San Diego. While there, he traveled to Juarez, Mexico with a camera crew during the height of the cartel killings in an effort to help free a wrongfully charged U.S. Army veteran facing a life sentence in the notorious Cereso prison for bringing guns and ammunition into Mexico. His effort was successful, and Preston was credited by officials with the U.S. Consulate for saving the man's life. Preston met his wife and love of his life in his first television news market, Eureka, California. While at KIEM, Preston anchored the 6:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. newscast. Preston was born in Atlanta and also lived in Chicago for several years before moving to Southern California in the late '80s. Preston has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Chapman University, where he majored in broadcast journalism. He also attended Mississippi State for a few years and is passionate about the weather. Preston is a daily advocate for survivors of traumatic brain injury and children in need, and for years has mentored teens and adults in and out of state prisons and jails. Preston and his wife, Ariana, have a son and a daughter together.
