Walter first joined the Fox 5 news team as an Associate Producer in April 2011. He loved writing for the evening broadcasts, but he wanted to do more. Lucky for him, the guys in charge decided to give him a shot and now he’s living the dream as a reporter in America’s finest city.

Before landing in San Diego, Walter worked as a one-man band reporter in Winchester, Virginia. He covered stories all over the Shenandoah Valley while he was there and he met some incredible people along the way. He also spent time at Good Morning America in Washington D.C. and KGO in San Francisco.

Walter received his master’s in broadcast journalism from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. During that time, he was awarded the White House Correspondents Association Scholarship. He was even invited to the annual WHCA dinner where he met President Obama and the First Lady. He also got the chance to rub elbows with movie stars like Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes!
Although it’s been a few years, Walter is no stranger to Southern California. He graduated from Loyola Marymount University and he’s quick to point out that LMU has the most beautiful campus in the country. GO LIONS! Walter studied abroad on Semester at Sea during his time in undergrad and he credits that experience for shaping the way he views the world.

Walter was born in London, but he considers Potomac, Maryland his hometown. Although he misses his family in the Washington, D.C. area, he’ll be the first one to tell you how excited he is to be back in the golden state.

When he’s not reporting, you can find Walter in the gym, on the beach or exploring San Diego. He loves taking advantage of everything Southern California has to offer.

What’s on your iPod?

It changes weekly, but my favorites are Kanye West, Jay Z, David Guetta, Mumford & Sons, Lil’ Wayne, Nicki Minaj, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Florence + the Machine, Passion Pit and Calvin Harris.

Which professional sport would you play and why?
Baseball. I haven’t played since I got cut during JV tryouts in high school. I was really good except for the whole “hitting” and “catching” part. I’m not bitter.

If you were not in TV news, what profession would you choose?

That’s easy, I would be a professional DJ because I love music or a writer for Lonely Planet because I love to travel.

What’s something that no one knows about you?

I have an unhealthy obsession with Mexican food. I could eat it every day of the week!

Dinner for 5, who would you invite? (Dead or alive)

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Jack Kerouac, Chris Rock, Steve Jobs, and my grandmother Lela Morris. Is it cool if Jesus and Beyoncé stop by for dessert?
