Chris began his radio career in 2005 after spending 17 years inside the Washington Bureau at CNN. Beginning his career as a researcher, Chris worked his way up the ranks through Assignment Editor, Producer, Military Affairs Producer, and Senior Producer for National Security Affairs and Pentagon Correspondent, before fleeing CNN for greener pastures.
His career at CNN afforded Chris the opportunity to crisscross the globe, covering events from Vietnam to
Albania, and Severodvinsk to Jakarta. He was the director of U.S> television network pool operations in Saudi
Arabia for three months following Saddam Hussein’s 1990 invasion of Kuwait.
After years of covering politics and Washington scandals, he spent nearly a decade assigned to the Pentagon for
CNN, covering the U.S. military and intelligence community for the network.
Chris won the Edward R. Murrow Award from the Radio & Television News Directors Association (RTNDA) for his
live coverage of the terrorist attack on the pentagon on September 11th, 2001. He was the first to report that
the Pentagon had been attacked.He was also recognized by the Television Academy (the Emmy people) for his
September 11th reporting.
Chris is very proud to have been awarded The Reed Irvine Award from Accuracy In Media for his blunt coverage
of media bias and corruption.
He makes regular appearances on The Fox News Channel and The Fox Business Network.
The third generation of his family to find a home in radio and television, Chris now follows in the footsteps of his
maternal grandfather, Pat Barnes, who was a radio pioneer in New York and Chicago in the 1920s and 1930s
following his return from Europe after World War One. His mother, father, stepfather, and several brothers
have also made careers in broadcasting and journalism.
Chris is a practical, principled, independent-minded, Constitutional conservative – with a libertarian streak – and
is unabashedly pro-American.
His daily radio program is entertaining, irreverent, and clever as we weaves pop culture references into his
discussion of the news of the day. Devoted listeners say that Chris makes them laugh, even when discussing the
most difficult of subjects. “That is my favorite thing to hear”, says Chris.
