Cameron Mackintosh was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and lived in both Uganda and Zambia before moving to the United States in 2011 to further his education at Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio. There, he double-majored in English and psychology.

Cameron held a number of journalism-related positions at Wittenberg, working as a senior staff writer for the campus’s weekly newspaper, The Torch, as well as spending a year as an integrated media intern for the Office of University Communications.

In 2014, Cameron was accepted into the Institute on Political Journalism, where he completed an 8-week internship with Deutsche Presse-Agentur at the German press agency's Washington D.C., bureau. Cameron has also worked as a contributing feature writer for The Farmer’s Gazette, a national publication in Lusaka, Zambia, covering the country’s agriculture sector.

Having completed his studies in 2015, Cameron moved to Anchorage to join the Channel 2 News team to further pursue his love of journalism. He says the beauty and unique qualities of Alaska led him north.

Cameron was a four-year collegiate swimmer and is a diehard supporter of South Africa’s national rugby team, the Springboks. He's looking forward to taking on new hobbies and adventures in the Last Frontier.
