920 News Now with Teresa Lukens and Dave Spencer

Teresa Lukens

For more than 30 years, Teresa has been a fixture in broadcast journalism on Spokane television and radio. After a three-year stint as a live reporter on KXLY TV’s Good Morning Northwest Teresa jumped into radio in 2002—first as a morning host on Classy 99.9 FM, and then as a news anchor on KXLY 920. All the while holding down duel broadcast roles as the host of Good Morning Northwest Sunday.

After leaving KXLY in 2010, Teresa continued her work as a radio news anchor, and again pulled television duty, hosting Health Matters on Spokane Public TV station KSPS. Now back at KXLY, Teresa co-anchors 920 News Now weekday mornings along with her co-host of many years Dave Spencer.

Teresa is a Northwest native who grew up in the small town of Winthrop, WA. Aside from two years in Butte, Montana where she started her broadcast career, she has never lived outside the state of Washington. She and her husband Rick have been married over 30 years, and have two adult daughters—both Spokane born and raised, and both graduates of Washington State University.

Dave is in his third stint with the KXLY Broadcast Group! He started his radio career in 1987, working at the campus radio station at Eastern Washington University. He was hired in early 1991 at KZZU, which was purchased by KXLY in 1996. During his early years he wore many hats, from traffic reporter to Sports Talk Show host to Music Director for an 80’s station. After leaving in 2005, he returned to KXLY in 2006 and eventually became the producer for KZZU’s morning show with Dave Ken and Molly. He left a second time in 2010, worked part time at another local radio station before landing a job as morning news producer for yet another Spokane radio station in 2012. He would go on to become morning co-anchor (with Teresa Lukens) and Program Director of that station until January 2020. In November of 2020, Dave returned home to become morning news producer for 920 News Now. In January of 2022, Dave was reunited with Teresa Lukens, becoming co-anchor and Program Director of 920 News Now.
