Conner Hendricks

Conner Hendricks joined the KCRG-TV9 News team as Iowa State Capitol Reporter in June of 2023. He works out of our Des Moines newsroom and covers the capitol for six Gray Television stations covering Iowa including KCRG, KWQC, KTIV, WOWT, KTTC, and KYOU.

He grew up just outside of Atlanta and graduated from the University of Georgia in 2023 with a bachelor’s in journalism and a minor in International Affairs.

Before coming to Iowa, Conner worked at InvestigateTV, Gray Television's national investigative unit as an Associate Producer. He also interned at 13 WMAZ and worked as an Associate Producer at WGXA – both in Macon, Georgia.

When he's not reporting, you can find Conner cheering on his beloved Georgia Bulldogs (GO DAWGS!), spinning old country records, or out exploring all that Iowa has to offer.

You can reach out to Conner by email at You can connect with him on Facebook and Twitter, both at @ConnerReports.
