Charlie Sokaitis is an Emmy award-winning journalist who joined NBC26 as Sports Director in June of 2015.
Although he was born in Colorado, Charlie has lived all over the country and considers Alaska home. Charlie started his career at KTVF in Fairbanks, Alaska before eventually joining KTUU in Anchorage. Over the course of 9 years on air in the “Last Frontier” Charlie covered everything from the 1,000 mile Iditarod sled dog race that ends in Nome to the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
The one thing that Alaska did not have was a professional sports team. When the opportunity to come to Green Bay and cover the legendary Packers organization arose, Charlie jumped at the chance.
