Demetrius Pipkin

Posted on: 08.11.2015 in reporter

Demetrius got his first taste of the television world while only a senior in high school. He worked as a part-time photojournalist at the local NBC affiliate in his hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada, where he covered a range of stories including local crime, sports, and the 2008 Presidential election.

After graduating, Demetrius moved to Phoenix, Arizona, to attend school at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University. During his three-year tenure at ASU, Demetrius freelanced for a number of different organizations where he shot, edited, and wrote his own stories.

In 2011, he packed his bags and moved to New York to accept a fellowship at CBS News, which would eventually lead him to a reporter position at Channel One News.

    I love all the news anchots and I think it is really interesting to see them at the real scene. But I think that if they did the weather it would be better.

      C.H.1 is a world news so you cant target some areas of weather


    let me tell you something, i sick of y’all everyday. STOP!!! ion care bout no news. my teacher play this everyday I’m sick of it.

    • gisellecenteno73

      Then don’t watch it read a book because these people work hard to give you the news

    • Zariah Creech

      ESWAN… That is rude these reporters made a good thing out of their life being on channel 1 news. Next they might be on the news reporting weather. This is a good program to stay alert about the world. Looks like you need to be at school watching this because their grammar is great but yours is HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!
