General assignment reporter
Chris Parenteau is a multi-media Journalist at News4Jax, writing, shooting and editing his own stories.
Since joining the WJXT news team in 2009, Chris said the most fun story he has covered was the selling of the Jaguars to Shad Khan, traveling to Illinois, New York, Dallas and Atlanta following the new owner.
Chris grew up in Palm City, Fla., but moved to Jacksonville in 2005 to attend the University of North Florida. He began at WJXT after graduating from the UNF in 2009 with a degree in electronic media and a minor in sports management.
Outside of work, Chris enjoys golfing, fishing, boating, and just about anything else outdoors.
"You can also sometimes find me hanging out with friends or watching whatever game is on TV," Chris said. "Unfortunately, I am not an SEC fan, so recent success hasn't followed many of my teams."
