Posted: Updated:

Originally from southern Illinois, Zac is excited to start his broadcast career in the Pacific Northwest. He joined the NBC Right Now news team in February 2013, after graduating from Illinois State University with a degree in broadcast journalism.

Zac got a taste for broadcasting his freshman year of college when he hosted his own radio show under the alias DJ Summertime. He later transitioned into TV, getting a chance to report, produce and anchor for Illinois State's student-run TV channel, TV-10 News.  In the summer of 2011, Zac solidified his calling for TV news after completing an internship at WMBD-TV in Peoria, Illinois.

Apart from being a text-book news junkie, Zac enjoys volunteering, sudoku puzzles, and being outdoors.  If you have a story idea for Zac, send him an email at
