JD Carrere joined Spectrum Networks in 2012 as a production assistant, covering the Los Angeles Lakers. Years later, he became an editor for the network, covering the Los Angeles Dodgers.
When Spectrum News 1 was starting to form, JD didn’t know if getting into the world of news would be a good fit, even though he worked as a multimedia journalist before (over a decade ago in a different city).
The leadership at Spectrum was forming a team of people that would be experts in their communities to tell hyperlocal stories, and JD wanted to be a part of that.
When it comes to the types of stories he wants to tell, JD would tell you that he “wants to take you to a place that you can’t go or won’t go.”
He's a native New Orleanian who moved to L.A. in 2011 on a one-way plane ticket and a suitcase full of clothes. Now married with two boys (and another on the way), he now considers Southern California his home.
