FIVE QUESTIONS WITH CHRIS:
What is your favorite St. Louis activity?
Besides being at games? The unbelievable golf courses!

What would you do if you weren’t in radio?
Spending all my time at another job listening to sports talk radio.

Do you have any pets?
No. My mom never let us get a dog growing up because she claimed 5 kids (and 4 boys) were enough work!

Share one random fact.
I play the drums, and got my first drum set when I was in sixth grade.

If you could live anywhere else in the country, where would it be?
Chicago, Ill. or Boston, Mass. — the two places in the country where all of my family lives! But despite being incredibly supportive, I’m not sure my parents would let me move back in.
