Jeremy Chen

Jeremy Chen joined the News Channel 3 & CBS Local 2 news teams in August 2016. He is a general assignment morning reporter who is excited to be telling stories in the Coachella Valley. It’s also a homecoming of sorts for Jeremy as he spent parts of his childhood in Yucca Valley and is a native of Rancho Cucamonga. Before coming to the desert, Jeremy worked for over a year as a multimedia journalist and fill-in anchor for KAEF-TV, the ABC affiliate in Eureka, CA.

At USC, he spent over 4 years working at USC’s student-run news station, Annenberg TV News as an assignment editor, video journalist, reporter, and anchor. Fun fact: Jeremy was a 5-year member of the USC Trojan Marching Band where he played cymbals and snare drum. He had an opportunity to perform and appear on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Voice, as well as the Playboy Jazz Festival. He won’t hesitate to play Fleetwood Mac’s “Tusk” when the situation warrants.
