Chris Leary arrived to the Golden State in the early 90’s, and aside from a quick stint in D.C., has called California home ever since. This Emmy winner and three time nominee is joining the Spectrum News 1 team as Anchor of The Beat on 1.

In addition to his role as a journalist, Chris is a general aviation pilot. He has flown coast to coast in his small plane numerous times and considers the LA lights at night from above to be the most beautiful in the country. Chris has also enjoyed volunteering for the UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital.

When Chris isn’t at the news desk, volunteering, or in the air, you can catch him hitting the food trucks outside the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center.
