Evan Peterson is a general assignment multimedia journalist working the dayside shift during the week and the morning shift on the weekends. He was born in Dallas, Texas, and spent the first few years of his life there before relocating to Chicago for a little while and then ultimately settling in Elmhurst, IL.
Evan graduated from York Community High School and later Marquette University where he studied digital media and political science.
