Peter Vance was born and raised in Baltimore, MD and joined the KRIS 6 news team as a multimedia journalist in June of 2021. His tendency to always be on the move and his love for connecting with new people is what led him to pursue a career in reporting.
Peter was a University of South Carolina Gamecock and graduated magna cum laude in May 2021 with a degree in broadcast journalism and a minor in sport and entertainment management. He worked with his school's TV station where he served as the entertainment director, marketing director, reporter, and anchor over the course of four years.
In the summer of 2020, Peter was an intern for Seacrest Studios at Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte, NC. He hosted a TV/Radio show called "Wheels Up! with DJ Down Unda" where he shared his love for travel and culture with the hospital's patients.
Peter also ran the social media for The Echo Project in the fall of 2020. His time with the foundation grew his passion for sharing diverse stories.
Peter is thrilled to call the coastal bend home and is eager to cover stories that will have an impact on his new community. You can send him story ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
