Title: Multi-platform Journalist.
peter.hulett@wlfi.com

My name is Peter Hulett, most call me Pete, and I'm from a small town outside Grand Rapids, Michigan. I graduated from Michigan State University in 2020 with a degree in journalism. I moved to the area this November and have been loving getting to know the community.

I joined News 18 in November 2020 as a multi-platform journalist.

I have interned at WZZM-13 in Grand Rapids as a reporter and sports reporter. I was a reporter and videographer at Michigan State's independent student paper, The State news.

At home, I love gaming, playing my guitar, my car, and a nice movie.

I'm a massive sports fan, and when I'm not cheering on my Spartans, I'm learning to wear black and gold and Boiler Up.

I'm looking forward to bringing your stories to TV screens across Greater Lafayette!
