George Knapp brings in the New Year on The Joiner Report

     George Knapp is an award winning investigative journalist. He is a frequent host on the Sunday Night / Monday morning Coast To Coast AM syndicated radio broadcast and is well known for his work on anomalous phenomena, a recurring topic on the show.

One of the noted events covered was in the late 1990s and early 2000s when he publicized the Skinwalker Ranch event in northeast Utah, where strange happenings are alleged to have occurred.

Knapp was born in Woodbury, N.J., and raised mostly in Northern California. He graduated from high school in Stockton, Calif.; earned a bachelor’s degree in communications from West Georgia College; and later earned a master’s degree in communications from the University of the Pacific, where he also taught speech and debate and served as director of forensics. He also taught speech at California Polytechnic University, coached the debate team at the University of California at Berkeley and taught broadcast journalism at UNLV.

Along the way, Knapp also worked as a hodcarrier, farm laborer, carpenter’s assistant and house painter. He moved to Las Vegas in 1979 and landed a job as a taxi driver. Later, he worked at KLVX-TV Channel 10 as a part-time studio cameraman and production assistant. KLAS-TV hired him in 1981 as a general assignment reporter. He also has co-anchored various newscasts for KLAS-TV.

Since 1995, Knapp has been the chief reporter on Channel 8′s I-Team investigative unit. In that capacity, he has earned *four* regional Edward R. Murrow awards and a national Edward R. Murrow award for his investigative stories on the voter registration fraud in the Clark County election of 2004.

He has won a prestigious Peabody Award and *17* Emmy Awards. Nine times, he has won the Mark Twain Award for best news writing from the Associated Press. And in 1990, his series about UFOs was selected by United Press International as best in the nation for Individual Achievement by a Journalist.
