Pete Suratos is excited to return to NBC Bay Area as a multimedia journalist and reporter covering Contra Costa County. You can currently catch Pete’s stories on our 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. newscasts. 

During his previous stint with the station from 2015-2021, Pete began as a freelancer before becoming a full-time weekday morning reporter for “Today In The Bay.” In this role, Pete covered some of the region’s biggest stories, including historic wildfires, the coronavirus pandemic, social justice demonstrations, and championship parades for his hometown Golden State Warriors. 

The Richmond, Calif. native started his career in Las Vegas, working as a regional reporter for the Fox News Channel from 2011-2013. While working in Vegas, his coverage included the 2012 presidential election and GOP primaries, exclusive red carpet events with the biggest names in Hollywood, and ringside coverage for boxing and UFC fights on the Strip.
