Jeremy Chen

Jeremy Chen has been a reporter at NBC Connecticut since September 2022 and can be seen weeknights on NBC Connecticut News at 11 p.m.

He comes to Connecticut after working three years at KTNV-TV in Las Vegas as a multimedia journalist/reporter and fill-in anchor covering issues such as education in Clark County and the AAPI community when he wasn’t exploring Vegas buffets.

Prior to being in Sin City, Jeremy worked at KESQ-TV in Palm Springs, California for three years as a morning reporter and fill-in anchor, where he covered various national stories including the Turpin’s Torture case, the Pinyon Pines Triple Murder Trial and the Palm Springs mayor corruption scandal.

Before going 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. While in the North Coast of California, he had the opportunity to report on a variety of stories ranging from medical cannabis to economic development to homelessness.

Jeremy graduated cum laude from the Annenberg School for Journalism at the University of Southern California with a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Chinese.

There, he spent more than 4 years working at USC’s student-run news station, Annenberg TV News. He has been an assignment editor, a video journalist, and a reporter/anchor for the station.

When Jeremy isn’t out reporting, he can be found hiking or trying out whatever seafood Connecticut has to offer. If he’s indoors, he prefers either experimenting with new recipes, watching USC football during the fall, or coming up with new beats on drums. Don’t be afraid to say hi.

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.

He is a Southern California native and a passionate USC football, Lakers, and Dodgers fan.
