WAFB Reporter

Baton Rouge, La.

Spencer is from Denver, Colorado and spent many of his childhood nights in Mile High City newsrooms where his dad was a sportscaster. Since then, he's always known he wanted to work in television.

Spencer graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2019 with a degree in journalism. Hook 'em Horns!

During his time as a student at Texas, Spencer worked as an intern at KUSA in Denver, KUTV in Salt Lake City, and KVUE in Austin.

Spencer is a huge football guy and he's excited to be in Baton Rouge for Tiger games! Spencer is also really enjoying Louisiana food and wants your recommendations for the best poboys and chargrilled oysters in town.

If he’s not on his couch watching the Denver Broncos or Texas Longhorns and you see him, come say hello. He can’t wait to meet WAFB’s awesome viewers and to tell the stories of the great people of Baton Rouge!
