Connect With Eric Paree

Eric Paree joined News Channel 3 in August of 2015 as a Sports/Social Media Reporter, but it is not his first stint in West Michigan.

Born and raised in the Metro Detroit Area, Eric moved to Kalamazoo and attended Western Michigan University so he could pursue a degree in Film, Video and Media Studies. It is there that his passion for broadcasting in the Western Michigan community really started to take off.

After college, Eric joined News Channel 3 working behind the scenes as a News Photographer and Editor covering both news and sports at the high school, collegiate, and professional levels.

From there, Eric decided to leave Kalamazoo in 2014 in order to pursue his dream of becoming an on air personality. Moving to Alpena, Michigan, Eric joined the news team at WBKB, where he held several roles including News Director and Sports Director.

Now, Eric is very happy to return to the West Michigan area and get reacquainted with everyone in the community.
