Charles Burkett

Charles is a reporter for KNOE 8 News.

Born and raised in Texas, Charles loves local food, flavors, and people. He enjoys meeting new people and talking about their passions. A graduate from the University of North Texas in Denton, he found his passion in reporting about local businesses, events, music, and people that make a town what it is.

Before he studied journalism, he had a few other careers. One of those was being a pastry chef for a four-star restaurant after he attended cooking school.

He is married to his wife Jessica and has a son, Jackson. He is a fan of craft beer, karaoke, and loves to learn about new things.

Charles recently moved to Louisiana, which is his first time living outside the Lone Star State. He already loves the people, atmosphere and food, and says that Monroe reminds him of Denton.

He loves talking to others about the things they enjoy in life, so if you see him around town, say hello!
