Charles Robert "Chuck" Henry (born January 1, 1946) is an American journalist. Henry can be seen co-anchoring the 5, 6 and 11 PM newscasts on KNBC-TV. Before anchoring at KNBC, he worked for 19 years at KABC-TV where he served as a reporter, anchor, director and producer from 1971 until 1978 and again from 1982 until 1993.
Henry gained national attention in October 2003, when he and his cameraman were nearly killed in the field while shooting a report about California forest fires. Although the newspeople were told to leave by the fire department, a sudden change in wind direction prevented Henry from doing so. Their van was engulfed and lost to the fire and the team had to be rescued by the LAFD (Los Angeles Fire Department).
Henry joined the NBC 4 staff in January 1994 (just several days until his 48th birthday) replacing John Beard as anchor of the 4 P.M. news and also as a reporter. Later in 1997, Henry replaced Jess Marlow on the 6 P.M. newscast which he continues to do every night in addition to the 5 P.M. and 11 P.M. newscast after the retirement of Paul Moyer. Henry is also well known for hosting (and executive producing) Travel Cafe, a travel program in which he flies all around the world highlighting food and travel. Travel Cafe, a two-time Emmy Award winner, was the first local (Los Angeles) TV series produced in HDTV and is also seen on the Travel Channel.
In 1989, Henry hosted a short-lived revival of the classic 1970s game show Now You See It on CBS daytime running from April 3 until July 14, 1989. It was rumored that Henry has requested GSN to not rerun his version of NYSI on the channel as it might harm his credibility in the news business.
From 1984 until 1991, Henry was the host and in 1988 added producer/director to the popular travel magazine program Eye on L.A., Henry has visited every continent in the world as host of these programs which he received several Emmys.
Henry was previously a news anchor-reporter at WMAQ-TV, the NBC-owned television station in Chicago, Illinois from 1978 until 1982. Henry began his career in broadcasting at KHVH-TV in Honolulu as news anchor-reporter from 1966 until 1971 with a short interval in Anchorage, Alaska as a news anchor-reporter for KENI-TV from 1967 until 1968.
Henry is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) and is well-known to have spent several years as his congregation's Sunday school teacher.
