Colton Chavez



Colton Chavez, here. If you live in Cape Coral, Matlacha, or Pine Island, I’m your committed Community Correspondent at Fox 4.

Cape Coral was my introduction to Florida, and it’s the reason I fell in love with the Gulf Coast and choose to serve this community every day.

Like many of us who have come to love this area, I am, in fact, from out-of-state: a Colorado kid who traded in the snow for the SWFL sand.

Growing up I spent my winters snowboarding in the Rockies, and my summers making camping trips up to the lake.

I love sports and I am an avid football fan (Go Denver Broncos). If you ever see me walking around town, feel free to ask me how my teams are doing and prepare to hear me vent.

After graduating from Colorado Mesa University, I got my first real taste for news during an internship at a station in San Diego, CA. I immediately fell in love with being near the ocean and everything that comes with living that coastal life.

My career path would keep me in California, but take me out of SoCal.

I spent two years as a Multimedia Journalist in Redding, CA before the Gulf Coast called my name and made my dreams of once again living by the water, a reality.

Now I get to report in a city where the sights don’t stop, and most people only get to experience on vacation...not a bad gig!

My perfect day in Cape Coral would start at the Omelet Shop, after which I’d catch an afternoon fishing charter off Matlacha and end the night in Southwest Cape with friends by the pool --- who’s with me?!

If you have a story idea on the Cape, or in Matlacha or Pine Island, give me a shout ASAP… or if you just want to say hi… or tell me where to find your favorite fish taco.
