John Reger is a native of Minneapolis and went west to attend Stanford University where he played basketball and graduated with honors in Political Science and Communications.
He worked in Los Angeles in all aspects of TV and film production, including acting, writing and directing. After settling on broadcast news, he anchored and reported at network-affiliated stations in Utah, Idaho, South Dakota, Minneapolis and California, most recently in the Santa Barbara area. Along the way he's been honored with numerous journalism awards from the Emmys, the Associated Press and Northwest Broadcast News Association.
John is single and an avid adventure traveler, having visited 100 countries, seen the Wonders of the World and climbed some of the world's tallest mountains. He plays several musical instruments, loves to backpack and is always looking for a good game of hoops.
John will be anchoring the 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscasts Monday through Friday.
"I'm excited about exploring a new part of the country and joining a solid news team with a lot of great people," says Reger.
