Chris Demers

Photojournalist

Chris Demers graduated from Colorado State University-Pueblo with a Bachelor's degree in Mass Communications with an emphasis in Electronic Media.

He first joined the News5 team as an intern while also gaining experience in radio broadcasting. Chris soon joined the team in production and as a photojournalist.

"While working here I have learned how to be a director and I really enjoy doing it. I have become a Swiss Army Knife of sorts because I am a director, editor, floor director, and photographer," explains Chris. "What drives my inner journalist is that I love being able to give the community the information they need and I actually love my job and look forward to every day that I'm there."

Born in Houston, but raised in Colorado Springs, Chris loves being close to his family. He and his wife have two horses, one donkey, 2 cats, and 2 dogs. "I'm a city boy who learned how to live country and I love it!"

What he likes best about Colorado is the scenery and the wide array of places to go camping.
