Charles Robert "Chuck" Henry (born January 1, 1946) is an American journalist. Henry can be seen co-anchoring the 5, 6 and 11 PM newscasts on KNBC-TV. Before anchoring at KNBC, he worked for 19 years at KABC-TV, where he served as reporter, anchor, director and producer (1971–78, 82–93).[1]

Henry gained national attention in October 2003, when he and his cameraman were nearly killed in the field while shooting a report about California forest fires. Although the newspeople were told to leave by the fire department, a sudden change in wind direction prevented Henry from doing so. Their van was engulfed and lost to the fire and the team had to be rescued by the LAFD.[2]

Henry joined the NBC 4 staff in January 1994 (just several days after his 48th birthday), replacing John Beard as anchor of the 4 P.M. news and also as a reporter. Later in 1997, Henry replaced Jess Marlow on the 6 P.M. newscast, which he continues to do every night in addition to the 5 P.M. and 11 P.M. newscasts after the retirement of Paul Moyer. Henry is also well known for hosting (and executive-producing) Travel Café, a travel program in which he flies all around the world highlighting food and travel. Travel Café, a two-time Emmy Award winner, was the first local (Los Angeles) TV series produced in HDTV and is also seen on the Travel Channel.

In 1989, Henry hosted a short-lived revival of the classic game show Now You See It on CBS.

From 1984 to 1991, Henry was the host and in 1988 added producer/director to the popular travel magazine program, “Eye on L.A.” He has visited every continent in the world as host of these programs, which he received several Emmys. [3]

Henry was previously a news anchor-reporter at WMAQ-TV, the NBC-owned television station in Chicago, Illinois from 1978 to 1982. He began his career in broadcasting at KHVH-TV in Honolulu as news anchor-reporter from 1966 to 1971 with a short interval in Anchorage, Alaska, as a news anchor-reporter for KENI-TV from 1967 to 1968.[4]

Religion

Henry is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), and is well-known to have spent several years as his congregation's Sunday school teacher.[5]
