Hayley Watts

Hayley Watts is a weekend anchor and reporter for Action News Now.

Title: Reporter

Hayley grew up just outside of Los Angeles, but she fell in love with Chico when she attended Chico State to study journalism in 2003.

After college, she went back to Los Angeles to work as a freelance music journalist.

Her sense of adventure also took her to Parkersburg, WV, where she worked as reporter and weather anchor for WTAP News.

After years of being away, Hayley is happy to be back in her home state and in the city she fell in love with as a college student.

Her new home of Chico is where she met her husband and became a loving step-mom of two amazing boys (and the other kids – Kramer the cat and Harley the puppy!)

When Hayley isn't working she enjoys exploring the many adventures the North State has to offer with her family, or even just going for a run out in Bidwell Park. You can find Hayley on Facebook and Twitter.

When she is working, her passion is to tell meaningful stories that have a useful and positive impact on the North State community she loves.
