Chris has been hanging around Mix96 for years now. He’s in charge of the news, but we’re not sure exactly what he does.

If you hear him on air the first thing you’ll notice is he’s grumpy, after that you might spot a Midlands twang in his voice, that’s because he’s originally from Stoke – which makes him northern according to the people down here.

He lives in Leighton Buzzard with his wife Rachael who somehow puts up with the sarcasm and the grumpiness. He also has a daughter called Florence who is very cute, but also very cheeky (not sure where she gets that from).

There’s also another child on the way so if you see Chris asleep, please leave him where he is- he needs the sleep.
