Parker is new to California but is doing his due diligence exploring his new home in Long Beach the right way - one coffee shop at a time! He’s never met a coffee shop he didn’t like. Before joining Spectrum News 1, Parker worked as a live reporter on the ground and from Chopper 13 for Good Morning Las Vegas, where he went down as the first Las Vegas reporter to utilize drones for capturing footage.

An Emmy-winning reporter, Parker is known for his unique storytelling, knack for creativity, and extensive breaking news experience. Parker’s reporting following the 2017 Las Vegas shooting, where he spent nearly 26 hours in wall to wall coverage, goes down as the most meaningful story he has covered. October 1, 2017 is a day he’ll remember forever.

When not at work, Parker enjoys some spooky pastimes like exploring cemeteries and watching horror movies.
