Jaime Chambers joins Fox 5 San Diego as a reporter arriving from our sister station, KTLA.

Grandson of legendary KTLA reporter Stan Chambers, Jaime joined KTLA as a news intern after attending college in Santa Barbara where he studied biology and planned to become a doctor. While in college he became a medic and lifeguard and went to Fiji to provide medical relief.

Jaime was hired as a KTLA news assignment desk assistant in 2001. After assisting in KTLA’s coverage of the September 11th terrorist attacks, the young Chambers made the decision to stick with a career in broadcast journalism.

Jaime broke into reporting when, in 2003, he happened to be in the Fairfax area of Los Angeles as a small plane crashed into a nearby apartment building. Using his experience as a medic, Jaime tried to help victims until the fire department and paramedics arrived. A KTLA news reporter on the scene interviewed Jaime live to ascertain what the statuses of some of the victims were. Jaime’s clear and concise report impressed KTLA news management so much that it was decided he would train as a reporter under his grandfather, Stan Chambers.

Since 2003, Jaime developed his broadcast reporting skills as a full-time reporter for KTLA’s “Prime News,” working alongside his grandfather. An avid surfer and snowboarder, Jaime also provides surf and snow reports for the “KTLA Morning News,” as well as “Prime News.”

Jaime is an avid surfer and snowboarder in his spare time. He is happy to return to Southern California.
Jaime is married to his college sweetheart, Julie, and is the proud father of Annabelle Kate Chambers
