Chris Pope loves story telling. One of his role models, his great-grandfather was the best story teller.
Chris uses this love to tell stories each day to listeners to the Afternoon News from 3pm-7pm on 570 News in Kitchener as News Anchor and Managing Editor.
Anchoring on CKGL is a bit of a homecoming, because it’s where he got his first part-time job in radio. After stops in Wingham (CKNX, CIBU), Vancouver (CKWX, CFUN) and Calgary (CFFR), Chris came back to Kitchener with some great experience and many, many lessons learned from some insanely talented people he met along the way.
You can also find Chris hosting Kitchener Rangers games on Rogers TV. His four years playing Junior hockey has meant he still can’t walk away from the game.
Chris graduated from the College of Sports Media in Toronto in 2010. It was there he learned the tricks of the trade under the likes of Jim Van Horne, David Lanys, Elliotte Friedman, David Amber, Roger Lajoie, Ray Williams, Paul Smith and Norma Wick.
You should ask him about his first audition at CSM. That’s a story worth telling.
