Some of his most memorable reporting includes his coverage of the 2019 crane collapse in Seattle, the 2017 Amtrak derailment in DuPont, Washington, and years of devastating wildfires across the Pacific Northwest.

Cohen started his career at KHQ Local News in Spokane, Washington. Originally from New York, he grew up in a family of journalists and attended Northwestern University. Cohen and his wife are the proud owners of a sleepy basset hound named Arthur.
