Chris Sadeghi is a reporter at WFAA in Dallas, TX, specializing in general assignment reporting for WFAA's Daybreak morning news.
1) Who are you? Long before the sun comes up, Chris Sadeghi is awake and gathering news in North Texas. He has reported live each morning for News 8 Daybreak since July of 2016. But he always had roots in DFW, particularly Collin County where he grew up and graduated from Allen High School. His reporting career also began just north of Dallas in the Sherman-Denison area.
2) What are your interests? Chris has covered crime and courts for most of his career including the trials of the Fort Hood shooter and Chris Kyle’s killer. While on the crime beat, Chris completed the FBI Citizen’s Academy along with academies in local police departments. Throughout his career, Chris has covered every type of story imaginable from the Texas Capitol to Hurricane Ike, the World Series to training with the US Marines.
When not reporting, Chris is always looking for a new destination to travel. His favorite cities to visit thus far are Venice, Italy and Lagos, Portugal. He also enjoys working out and is an avid “white-collar” boxing fan. Sports watching is a favorite hobby and since he grew up in DFW, he is a devoted fan from childhood always loyal to the Cowboys, Mavericks, Rangers and Stars. His closet also features a lot of burnt orange for his alma mater, The University of Texas Longhorns.
3) What do you like about working at WFAA? As a native, Chris grew up watching WFAA and many of the same names and faces he now calls co-workers. Being a part of his hometown station’s tradition and history was always a goal and is something he considers an honor. He loves the station’s longstanding traditions and commitment to telling real stories in the best way possible.
4) What's one thing people would be surprised to learn about you? Chris biggest fans are his parents, sister, and two dachshunds who live in McKinney and watch Daybreak every morning.
