Chris grew up just outside Boston on the South Shore listening to legends like Dale Dorman and David Allan Boucher.  He went to Whitman Hanson Regional High School where he was always fascinated by radio but never really thought about getting behind the microphone until he tried it his freshman year at Ithaca College in New York.  It took less than a week for him to become bitten by the bug.  While in college, he spent summers interning at many great stations.  Chris also hosted a daily television show for the nationally syndicated network XY TV, which was a lifestyle show featuring fashion trends, relationship advice, plus music and movie reviews.  The show aired nationally and Chris welcomed to the show Kanye West, Lenny Kravitz and Weezer, just to name a few.  Chris is happy to be back in his hometown of Boston after working throughout the US and Canada, and lives on the south shore with his French Bulldog named Elton.
