My journalism journey began with an idea for a local art and music zine and the gumption to make it happen with no real plan or existing skill set.

I eventually got my journalism degree at Texas State University-San Marcos, where I worked for two years at the campus radio station, KTSW 89.9 FM. I started at the front desk and then reported for, co-hosted and produced a feature news show.

And I was really good at it! I won several awards for my reporting and producing while in school, including awards from the Houston Press Club, Society of Professional Journalists, College Broadcasters Inc., and the Texas Intercollegiate Press Association.

I have worked in construction, day labor, pizza, managed a local band, and performed live as a DJ. When I am not working I love spending time with my wife and kids, and when possible sports, music, video games and comics/graphic novels.

Chris started at Texas Public Radio in May 2012.

Finally, T.V. Commercials At A Reasonable Volume

Lead in text: 
Remember when President Obama signed the law requiring commercials level out their volume? Well, today is the day the networks have to be compliant with the FCC regulations, and hopefully the end of being startled by the blast through your T.V. when a program went to commercial break.
Today's The Day Television Commercials Must Officially CALM Down December 13, 2012 Obnoxiously loud television commercials are now, supposedly, a thing of the past. A new law kicked in today requiring broadcasters to air commercials at the same loudness level as programming. Advertisers and television stations have had some time to prepare for this.

Texas Wind Power Considers Future Of Fewer Tax Breaks
