Eric Chaloux joined KCTV5 News in December 2002 as a general assignment reporter. He's now a member of KCTV5's award-winning investigative unit.
Prior to joining KCTV5, Eric held similar positions at stations in Kansas City, at KSPR-TV in Springfield, Mo. and KOMU-TV in Columbia, MO.
Eric has exposed legal, crime and political stories for nearly a decade in Kansas City. He won an Edward R. Murrow Award for his investigative series involving millions of dollars in unpaid bills and bizarre collection practices of a local public utility. Two of Eric's recent undercover news investigations exposed flaws in the state sales tax collection programs that led to legislation being filed in Missouri and Kansas to correct the problems. The Missouri Broadcaster's Association awarded those pieces the award for best news series of 2011.
Before working in television Eric was a radio play-by-play and sports announcer covering high school and college teams around New England. He also hosted a weekly music radio show that aired in New England and parts of Canada. Eric grew up in New Hampshire. As you might expect, he's a die-hard Boston Red Sox, Bruins and Patriots fan.
Eric graduated from the oldest journalism school in the country at the University of Missouri. He also has a Juris Doctorate from Taft Law School.
He shares his wonderful life with his wife, daughter and son.
