Walter Cronkite meets Joey Ramone


Chris has over 28 years of broadcast journalism experience as an Assignment Editor at CNN in New York as of 2014. Chris has been prepping for his future role of being a father by reading, painting the nursery, watching Disney movies and cooking – which his wife says he’s become quite good at! He has been married for 2 years and is expecting his first human child – in addition to being a pet father to a standard poodle named Morgan – who is probably wondering “what’s going on with all this baby stuff – I’m the only baby around here!”
