Trish Christakes is a reporter at WEEK/WHOI. She is from the suburbs of Chicago and is a broadcast journalism graduate of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
With her time in Champaign, she worked with Big Ten Network and ESPNU Campus Connection as a sideline reporter for men's basketball, football and baseball. Her favorite story she's done was during the 2015 MLB Draft. Five of the first round draft picks were playing in the NCAA baseball super regional game she covered. Telling their celebration story from college to professional was an amazing experience for her.
Over the summers Trish interned at Comcast SportsNet Chicago; she was able to cover her first love, the Chicago Cubs!
Trish is excited to make Peoria her new home and tell great stories. In her free time she loves volunteering at animals shelters and doing yoga. If you see her out, stop and say hello!
