I couldn’t be more excited to call Seattle my new home!

I’m a Multimedia Producer here at Q13 FOX News. That means I post news and shareable stories to Q13FOX.com and our social media pages. I also write for our TV newscasts as needed.

Back in 2011, I graduated from Washington State University (Go Cougs!) with a degree in communication/broadcast news.

I’m originally from Spokane where I landed my first news job. From there, I moved to the ‘Palm Springs of Washington’ for a couple of years. During my time in Yakima/Tri-Cities I worked just about every job in the newsroom -- from producing newscasts to running live shots and even reporting in the field.

I love the Pacific Northwest! And I’m always looking for new places to explore. Feel free to follow me on Twitter: @tslauson or get in touch with me by e-mail: tslauson@kcpq.com.

The oil plunge is spooking investors, helping to […]

    SEE IT: Flock of wild turkeys take over Spokane neighborhood (PHOTOS)

    SPOKANE — It’s not easy being a wild turkey in the city. Or is it? This pack of wild turkeys calls the South Hill neighborhood home. The flock manages to dodge traffic on busy streets as it moves across south Spokane. The turkeys snack on raspberry plants along the way and they’ve made a few friends who they visit regularly.
