“Journalism isn’t a career, it’s a lifestyle. I’ve decided to dedicate my life to seeking truth and reporting it.”

My name is Giacomo Antonio Luca and I’ve been a multiskilled journalist with ABC 10 News in Sacramento, California since August 2016.

Recently, I’ve covered historical events across Northern California such as the 2017 fires in wine country that destroyed thousands of homes, the Oroville dam spillway crisis, major floods,  the controversial legalization of marijuana, and reported extensively on the issue of homelessness here.

Before making the Golden State capitol my home, I worked for two years as a Southern Illinois Bureau reporter with KFVS-TV where I reported on the unprecedented year-long budget stalemate that cut off vital public services to Illinois’ most vulnerable citizens. I also covered historic flooding along the Ohio and Mississippi rivers in 2015.

I began my on-air career while still at university – commuting eight hours each weekend to anchor for Lima’s WLIO-TV in West Central Ohio.

I also completed television internships with WAWS-TV in Jacksonville, WXIX-TV in Cincinnati, and Tribune’s Chicago superstation WGN America.

I am a recipient of the John R. McClelland Reporting Award, an Illinois College Press Association Award, and the Curtis D. MacDougall Scholarship for journalism.

When I’m not hunting down leads I enjoys photography, bicycling, rock climbing, and traveling.
