It’s time for a change. I’ve worked at KDVR/KWGN-TV for 18 years. I’ve spent 10+ of those years waking up at 2:30am working a mix of Channel 2’s Daybreak and FOX-31’s Good Day Colorado.
Most people say to me, “I don’t know how you work those hours.” I don’t either but I’ve enjoyed it! I’m used to alpine starts for mountaineering, but doing it 5 days per week (or more) is exhausting and unhealthy. It’s time to close this chapter of my life.
What’s next? My last day on Daybreak is this Thursday November 3. On January 3, 2023 I’ll be moving full-time to Great Day Colorado (9-10am M-F) as co-host and working with a fantastic team. I’ll also have additional weather and lifestyle reporting responsibilities on the show. In the interim, I’ll be assisting the weather team by working afternoon/evenings through November and December.
The decision has been stressful, but I’ve had incredible support from my wife Leanne, close friends, and family.
I’m grateful to the station for this new opportunity. I always say it’s the people that make the difference in this business. I’ve made friends that will last a lifetime.
See you on the summit! Chris
This is my favorite promo of the last 10+ years. The creative service team did a great job.
Some fun times over the years –>
