During his 16 months covering the Trump administration, Yingst was first to report on major stories including the indictment announcement of 13 Russian nationals and the Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi's plans to meet with President Trump. Yingst was described by journalism's Poynter Institute as having aggressively questioned the Trump administration and by Mediaite as a correspondent with a "tendency to ask the major questions of the day." Prior to this, he contributed to BBC News where he reported on multiple breaking news events, including the police brutality protests in Baltimore, MD and Ferguson, MO, making national headlines for his coverage of the latter. In addition, Yingst contributed to Canada's CTV News and co-founded News2Share, an online media outlet publishing stories and multimedia content from conflict zones, while he was still in college.

Most recently, Yingst was named in the 2019 edition of Forbes 30 Under 30 media list. He received his bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism from American University.
