Eugene Buenaventura

Multi-Media Journalist

"Nothing is more humbling than meeting people from our community and sharing their stories of triumph or struggle."

Eugene is a Los Angeles native, and a proud graduate of Washington State University.

Entering college, Eugene always knew he wanted a career working with media. During his college years, he produced and edited for a number of student-produced shows at school and spent a summer working with KXTG, a radio station that covered the Portland Trail Blazers in Portland, Oregon.

Eugene loves the Yakima/Tri-Cities region; the people are friendly, and the summer weather reminds him of home. When he isn't running around town reporting, you can find Eugene either at the gym, at home playing video games, or learning new songs on his guitar and piano.
