Christian Piekos - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Christian Piekos

Christian Piekos is from Chicago, Illinois. He graduated from the Missouri School of Journalism in May of 2016 with an emphasis in broadcast journalism. While in school, Christian served as an anchor, reporter and producer for his local NBC-affiliate, KOMU-8 News, in Columbia, Missouri.

After graduating, he moved to New York City and worked for CBS News. Christian ran scripts and worked in the “green room” for “CBS This Morning.” He worked closely with the show’s anchors, Charlie Rose, Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell; he’s interacted with some of the world’s top politicians, generals and celebrities who’ve appeared on the show.

Christian loves spending time in the great outdoors, which makes Southwest Louisiana the perfect place to call home. You’ll find him on the road during his off days, exploring all that Louisiana has to offer, or just eating crawfish and gumbo.

He’s an avid Chicago Cubs fan and his heart is in Wrigleyville. Christian is also still looking for the perfect dog to bring home (will be named ‘Java’ after his love for black coffee).

If you see him around Lake Charles, please say hello (he might be lost)!
