Chris Hush joined WESH 2 News as a reporter in September 2014.
He joins WESH from our sister station WGAL in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
Prior to that, Chris was an anchor, reporter, and producer at WETM 18 News in Elmira, New York.
Although he's in UCF territory now, Chris loves to brag about his Alma Mater, Penn State University.
In fact, Chris was a Penn State cheerleader, traveling with the football and basketball teams from 2008- 2011.
When he wasn't cheering for the Nittany Lions, Chris was an international correspondent for the Centre County Report, reporting from Cape Town, South Africa.
He also interned for WRC-TV in Washington, D.C. and NBC's Today Show in New York City in 2010.
Growing up between New Jersey, New York, AND Maryland, Chris always had a front row seat to national events like the Beltway sniper shootings in 2002 in the DC metro area.
He remembers being "glued" to the TV, wanting to know every detail of the story. This "nosiness" is what led Chris to pursue a career in news.
Chris says one of his most memorable stories was covering the escape of nearly a million bees in Central Pennsylvania in 2013. Several bee stings later, he won the Associated Press award for spot news.
When not out on a story, Chris enjoys the next best thing, roller coasters! He also says he's a huge fan of Florida thunderstorms.
