Prior to coming to CBN, Chris served as principal anchor for Media One’s “Local Edition”, a five-minute news insert program that appeared on CNN’s Headline News. He was nominated for a Massachussetts Cable Commission award for outstanding newscast in 1996.

On “Forever Baseball,” he had the opportunity cover several World Series, championship series, and All-Star Games.

His position there led to the opportunity to create HomeTownSports.com, a groundbreaking Web site dedicated to the celebration of the high school athlete. The site spawned a television program of the same name that airs daily throughout New England. Under his leadership, the Web site was nominated for a national Beacon Award in 1999, for outstanding sports Web site, as well as being tabbed as one of the five best sports Web sites in Massachusetts by Boston Magazine.
