Christian Flores - | WBTV Charlotte

Christian Flores

Sitting still and being quiet is something Christian has never been able to do. Naturally, he gravitated toward journalism as a career.

Christian joined WBTV in February 2016 as our Gaston, Cleveland and Lincoln counties reporter - and Charlotte weekend reporter - after working at KTAL in Shreveport, LA. While in Shreveport, he was able to get a lot of practice covering crime and breaking news.

But Christian also reported on record Red River flooding during the summer, which displaced several families and led to FEMA providing federal assistance to the area. One of his favorite stories was on a new technology being developed in Shreveport, which helps police officers identify if they are about to enter the home of a dangerous fugitive, shortly after the shooting death of a Shreveport police officer. Of course, he did his fair share of reporting on Mardi Gras parades.

Christian is from the Washington, D.C., area. He graduated from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, where he earned both his Bachelor's and Master's degrees during his four years there. While there, he was able to begin his on-air reporting experience at WBOY in Clarksburg, WV, as part of the school's Journalism Residency program. He had a chance to dabble in Big Ten football, as a tight end/fullback on the football team his freshman year (Go 'Cats!).

When he's not reporting, Christian loves playing, watching and debating sports. He also loves traveling, watching movies and trying all kinds of different food.

Christian is excited to live in North Carolina, and trade shrimp po' boys for pulled pork sandwiches! If you see him out and about, feel free to chat with him! If you have a story idea, you can email him at cflores@wbtv.com.
