Born and raised in Whatcom County, Dillon Honcoop is as ‘local’ as they come – Dillon grew up on his family’s raspberry farm near Lynden listening to the KGMI Morning News everyday before going out to help his dad in the fields. A 2001 Lynden Christian High School graduate, Dillon attended Trinity Western University, graduating with his bachelor’s degree in communication in 2006. Working as a KGMI reporter was his first job out of college, and he’s been here ever since, writing, hosting talk shows and anchoring the news.

Dillon spends his free time helping his dad out on the farm, playing guitar, riding motorcycle and working on his truck. He’s a Whatcom County history junkie and loves exploring local foothills on two wheels. You can often catch him enjoying a cheeseburger at the sale barn or drinking a cup of coffee at a local tractor dealership.

Dillon’s love of radio began at a young age, driving tractor for hours on end and listening to local stations. Ever since his first tour of KGMI in the early 1990s, he knew he wanted to be on the air, and he still enjoys the energy of ‘going live’. His favorite part of his job is being able to help keep his fellow Whatcom County residents up to date on breaking local news, especially when people need to know what’s happening during fires, floods and storms. But even when no disaster looms, Dillon loves staying in touch with what’s important to his friends and neighbors around Whatcom County.
