Luke Lyddon joined the KVIA ABC 7 news team as the Weekend Anchor/Reporter in May 2014.
Originally from Scottsdale, Arizona, Luke's passion for broadcast journalism led him to the Midwest to pursue his dream of a career in journalism. While completing his studies at the University of Missouri, Columbia, Luke held the position of multimedia journalist and anchor at NBC's KOMU-TV.
He also worked with the station's Target 8 Investigative Team where he was able to tap into his creative side and help transform the art of storytelling into comprehensive and compelling stories.
Upon graduation, Luke accepted a position with the ABC-7 team in El Paso. He's excited once again to return to the Southwest region of the U.S. and the culture he loves.
He's looking forward to experiencing the diversity of the area, the great weather, and becoming a member of his new community.
Of course, Luke is beyond thrilled about the Mexican cuisine in the Borderland and he can't wait to visit all the restaurants in the area.
His interests are eclectic, especially in sports. In his spare time, you will most likely catch Luke playing basketball or ice hockey. Yes, ice hockey!
