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 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:
