Elijah Higgins is a Multimedia Journalist for KAKE News. Originally from Colwich, Kan., his career has taken him on various business ventures throughout the United States.
Eager to move back home, he accepted a job as a department head at a retail giant here in Wichita in 2015. Ultimately, his love and passion for the broadcast industry brought him to KAKE in 2017. Since then, he’s covered many local events and won first place in the KAB Large Market News Feature category for one of his stories. He is happy to be settled back in Wichita - the city he will always call home.
He is also a pilot and loves flying to various Kansas airports to check out the local cuisine. One of his favorite destinations is the Airport Steakhouse at KHUT. He also holds a Part 107 sUAS certificate and is KAKE’s drone pilot.
In his spare time he enjoys flying (obviously!), reading, and playing with his dog Pepper, a Shepherd/Lab mix. He’s a bit of an adrenaline junkie, is always up for an adventure, and is a self-proclaimed coffee addict.
Elijah is excited to be part of the KAKE family and looks forward to building his career in the broadcast industry.
