Chris Facchini is the anchor of WLBZ NEWS CENTER 2 at 5:00pm and 6:00pm.
Chris has been reporting in Maine since the Fall of 1997. He was just settling in at NEWS CENTER when he had a chance to cover the dramatic story of the Ice Storm of '98.
In December of 1999, he was assigned to the Lewiston Newsroom, where he distinguished himself over the years with his deep knowledge of the area and relationships with people within the community.
Chris is a graduate of Emerson College in Boston. He started his career at WPDE-TV in South Carolina.
When he's not at work, he likes to mountain bike, golf and cook -- especially Italian food! He and his wife Cyndi, along with their young twins, live in the Bangor area.
