Morning Show Anchor
Reaon is what he likes to call “a crafty veteran” here at News1130.
He started as an intern with the station back in 2002 after several years at Simon Fraser University and a Diploma in Broadcast Communications from BCIT.
He then spent a few years honing his skills on evenings, afternoons, middays, and weekends before being promoted to a reporter on the highly-rated News1130 Morning Show, and then eventually taking over at the anchor desk in 2009.
Born in Vancouver and raised in Coquitlam, Reaon is a west coaster through and through, who (on top of the news) is also passionate about music, movies, technology, video games, his cat, craft beer and enjoying everything else our little corner of Cascadia has to offer.
