Neil Hebert

Anchor, Multimedia Journalist

Neil is KSBY's Senior Reporter and anchor of KSBY News Daybreak weekday mornings from 5:00-7:00 a.m. He's lived on the Central Coast since February 2020, coming from Western Wisconsin where he was born and raised.


Neil is a baseball player-turned avid golfer (avid is an understatement). A proud sub-5 handicap, he picked up the sport in his mid-20s after realizing the sport offered a lifetime of opportunity, challenge, and golf trips. You can find him at local courses several days most weeks.

Neil's proudest moment on the golf course is a 2-under round of 69 at Morro Bay Golf Course.

Neil and his fiancée, Lauren, love to go on walks, hikes, and typically never turn down a night out for some live music and dinner. The couple loves jamming to crooners like Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, and Michael Bublé (Neil's favorite) while making dinner at home.


Neil began his career at WEAU 13 News in his home market of Eau Claire, Wisconsin where he was a news reporter before moving into the sports department as an anchor/reporter. He was most recently Sports Director for KSBY before making the transition to KSBY's Daybreak morning anchor in October of 2020.

Neil graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh with a degree in Radio/TV/Film. He played baseball for the university while being an active member of sports and news broadcasts for the university’s student-run television station, Titan TV, and radio station, 90.3 WRST. Neil was a play-by-play announcer for countless football games, basketball games, volleyball games, and wrestling matches during his time at UWO. He also co-anchored Titan TV News, his first real exposure to the news industry. One of his fondest memories at the university was hosting a two-hour jazz show on the radio.

Having a background in news and sports, Neil has covered a range of events from Super Bowl LII and the 2019 Final Four to Presidential rallies and numerous breaking news events.

Neil is dedicated to telling the stories of those making an impact on the Central Coast. If you have a story that you think should be told, email him at
