Chris Luther joined the NBC Right Now team as a reporter in September 2013 and is thrilled to return to the West Coast after spending the last 4 years studying broadcast journalism at Syracuse University in Upstate New York. Don't worry, with Syracuse recently voted one of the country's "snowiest" colleges, he doesn't think he'll mind winters in the Pacific Northwest.

Chris hails from Novato, California, about 30 miles outside San Francisco. He says Yakima is very similar to his hometown. Both have a vibrant wine culture, a multitude of outdoor activities and are nearby a major city on the coast of the Pacific Ocean.

The Newhouse School of Communications at Syracuse trained Chris incredibly well for a career in journalism.  While at school he performed a multitude of jobs including reporting, anchoring and producing for both news and sports shows. He also boosted his skills while interning for Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, KTVU News in San Francisco, WSYR News Channel 9 in Syracuse and, his most favorite internship, the 2012 NBC Olympics in London! In London Chris was able to learn from his lifelong idol and fellow Orangeman, Bob Costas. 

Chris is most excited to get to know the community of Yakima. He is passionate about human-interest stores. You might catch him playing golf or seeing a late movie during the week. Make sure to say hello if you see him around town! If you know of any stories you think Chris should cover, send him an email:
