I was hired as the Weekend Sports Anchor, and then became Sports Director, and for the past eight years have been the Morning Anchor. And over those years I've covered some amazing stories. The Baylor Basketball scandal, The Columbia break up over Texas, The Lady Bears two National Championships and even a Heisman Trophy. In more recent years it has been the 2 Fort Hood shootings, The West Fertilizer Plant Explosion, and the Twin Peaks Biker Shootout .
I'm a native of Los Angeles and my father worked for the Lakers for 48 years. That made him the longest tenured employee in franchise history!
Just 33 more years to go at KCEN to catch him!
I've also worked on the air in Southern California and Nebraska.
I have an amazing wife and 2 wonderful daughters. I truly am a blessed man!
Thanks for watching each morning and making my job so enjoyable.
In 2016 & 2017 Kris was fortunate enough to be named the Waco Tribune-Herald On-Air Television Personality Of The Year. Also in 2016 Texas Today won an AP Award For Best Morning Newscast.
