Luke Laster joined the CBS News Detroit team in August 2022, and it’s a homecoming for the Marine City native.
Luke joins the team after spending two years in Grand Rapids as West Michigan’s only digital anchor on WOOD TV8. There he managed and hosted daily live streams on the station’s digital platforms covering everything from breaking news, community events, weather and more. In this role, Luke has also been honored with Michigan Association of Broadcasters awards for his live broadcasts during ArtPrize and for a series called “Hops with #HeyLuke,” a digital exclusive highlighting local breweries throughout West Michigan.
Prior to his time in Grand Rapids, Luke also spent time adventuring around the Treasure State during his time at KULR-8 News in Billings, Montana, where he was an anchor/reporter.
As a graduate of Central Michigan University, Luke has participated in community activities such as News Central 34 and WMHW Radio. He also spent some time writing for the Grand Rapids Drive shortly after graduation.
When he’s not on the clock, you can find Luke at Lake St. Clair, working out and staying active or watching Troy Weaver build the team that will win the NBA Championship in 2025.
If you have a news tip or just want to drop in and say hello, you can find Luke on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
