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: tyler@q13fox.com.

    LIVE UPDATES: Seattle Seahawks at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    SEATTLE —  The Seattle Seahawks (7-2-1) seem to have hit their stride as they make the cross-country trip to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-5).

The Bucs have forced a league-leading 15 turnovers (six […]

    Amelia Earhart died as castaway on tiny Pacific island, study claims

    There’s an entire chapter in Amelia Earhart’s life that history ignores, says new research: The legendary American pilot died as a castaway, not in a plane crash. Earhart was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic. Her plane crashed into the Pacific Ocean while she attempted to circle the Earth. It was always assumed Earhart died in the crash and that her remains were lost to the deep waters. But now, the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR) […]

    The 25 worst states for health care access

    Though the Affordable Care Act was enacted in 2010, access to health care remains a challenge in many parts of the country. The issue is getting more attention this year as a contentious talking point in the presidential race. Because Medicaid was not uniformly expanded, many states still have health care shortage areas and many people argue that more should be done. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, for example, has made his proposed health care plan, Medicare for All, a cornerstone […]
