For 6 years in a row in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and again in 2021, Kris was named the “Waco Tribune-Herald On-Air Television Personality of The Year.” Viewers have enjoyed Kris in all of his roles at KCEN.

In 2016, Texas Today won an AP Award for “Best Morning Newscast.” Now, viewers enjoy Kris in the evenings alongside Leslie Draffin.
Over his 20 years, Kris has covered some amazing stories, including the Baylor Men’s Basketball scandal, the Columbia break up over Texas, the Lady Bears 3 National Championships, and even a Heisman Trophy. In more recent years he’s covered the two Fort Hood shootings, the West Fertilizer Plant Explosion and the Twin Peaks biker shootout. And then coming full circle, the Baylor Men's Basketball National Championship! Kris is a native of Torrance, California --a suburb of Los Angeles-- and a graduate of California State University at Long Beach. His father was a teacher and coach, and also worked for the Lakers. His role was the official scorekeeper for all home games for 48 years. That made him the longest tenured employee in franchise history! Kris needs just 28 more years to go at KCEN to catch him.
Kris is blessed to have an amazing wife and two wonderful daughters, and now a grandson, and granddaughter! Kris considers himself a truly blessed man!
