Zach spent the first 22 years of life in Athens, Ohio, home of Ohio University.
He grew up with a desire to write and to learn, only to realize in college that he wanted to do both for a living. He enrolled in Ohio University's E.W. Scripps School of Journalism as a sophomore and graduated three years later. During his time in journalism school, Zach worked for the City of Athens's government-access channel, The Government Channel.
After college, he joined WTAP Television in Parkersburg, West Virginia. While in Parkersburg, Zach worked as a reporter, an anchor/producer, and later an assignment editor.
In March, 2022, he joined WAFF in Huntsville as the station's assignment manager.
