Lane Luckie

Lane Luckie joined KLTV in 2012 as an anchor for Good Morning East Texas.

A graduate of Northwestern State University, Lane earned a Bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism with a minor in Political Science.

Growing up in nearby Louisiana, Lane knows the people of East Texas are what make it so unique. Everyone has a story and he promises to do his best to tell each one fairly. Lane is a huge history buff and sees journalism as an ideal opportunity to write the "first draft" of history as it happens. He hopes his passion for lifelong learning encourages others to take an interest in knowing their community.

Lane previously spent four years as evening anchor and executive producer at KTRE-TV in Lufkin and Nacogdoches. In 2008, he came to East Texas from KTAL-TV in Shreveport, where he was a general assignments reporter. Lane also spent four years working for the Natchitoches, Louisiana Convention & Visitors Bureau. During college he completed internships at WFAA-TV in Dallas, Texas and KPLC-TV in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Lane's work has been recognized by several journalism organizations including the Broadcast Education Association and the Southeast Journalism Conference.

A proud graduate of NSU, Lane has been named to the board of directors of the Northwestern State University Alumni Association. He's an alumnus of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity and currently serves as president of the Beta Omicron Chapter Alumni Association and Housing Corporation. Lane was named "alumnus of the year" in 2011 and was named to the national organization's 2014 'Thirty Under 30' list. Lane also works closely with emerging student leaders as the chapter advisor for Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity at the University of Texas at Tyler. 

Lane travels to college campuses around the country, facilitating the prevention education programs "The Ladder of Risk" and "ASTP." These presentations help college students make smarter and safer decisions as undergraduates. Lane was named Pi Kappa Phi's national "Facilitator of the Year" in 2012. In Lufkin, Lane was a mentor for students at Brandon Elementary through the H.O.S.T.S. (Helping One Student to Succeed) program. Recognizing that solid reading skills are the foundation of education, Lane worked with students in a classroom setting and provides one-on-one guidance to improve a student's reading abilities.

Much of his spare time is spent exploring new destinations, photographing people and places along the way. He's an avid college sports fan. When Lane's not chasing his next story, you'll find him embarrassing himself on the golf course.  Lane's favorite element of Southern culture is good company and stories over a great meal.
