Chris Liedle is very proud to be a part of the KVAL news team as a multi-media journalist and is excited to make Eugene his new home.

From San Diego, Chris is all about southern California. He loves to surf, be outdoors, and find the sun. Eugene is a transition for him, but he enjoys Eugene’s culture and loves the activities Oregon has to offer.

Chris graduated from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles with a degree in History and a minor in Film and Television. After obtaining his Bachelor’s, Chris interned at San Diego’s Fox channel KSWB, where he gained experience in producing, filming, and editing. During his internship, he continued ocean lifeguarding for the City of Del Mar, a job he’s held since he was sixteen. He has been showcased on The Weather Channel’s docudrama “Lifeguard!” and has competed in multiple state competitions.

Chris hopes to be an anchor in the next few years. He loves meeting people, so don’t be afraid of saying “hello!” You’ll most likely spot Chris hiking the Ridgeline Trail with his camera, mountain biking in the Cascades, or at a Thai restaurant downtown.
