Chris Michaels

Wow where does his story start? Well, on the personal side, Chris is a father of 4 girls who he says are completely the reason why he breathes. "My girls have inspired me to be the best in every aspect of my life and to master the gift of helping others do the same for themselves, but being a dad is the quintessential favorite part of my life." Motorcycles, Pool and Bowling are his sports (Yeah, he rolls 300s). He also has a fascination with rescue and law enforcement. However, it was from the age of 6 years old, Chris Michaels knew exactly what he wanted to become as a professional, and that was to be the guy who talked on the radio. "Radio broadcasting has always been my passion and was ultimately birthed into me by my late father who was a broadcaster for almost 50 years." I guess you can say he got it honestly. Chris had spent much of his childhood in radio stations seeing his dad perform this amazing craft, but as he became older those visits were essential lessons being taught by the man he called daddy, but Chris also saw him as a true genius at work. After being given an opportunity to attend a how-to workshop of becoming a radio broadcaster, and then recording over 85 demos, Chris was finally ready to submit his first radio broadcast demo to at the time programmer, Elroy Smith in Chicago who hired Chris on the spot. This was the snowflake that has now become an iceberg. With over 15 consistent years in radio, Chris considers himself blessed to do what he loves every day. “I can truly say that I am blessed beyond measure to have such a great career, which allows me to experience so much outside of a normal 9-5. I am truly grateful to God for this dream now reality life I have...To Him be The Glory." Chris Michaels is now broadcasting in over 25 markets, and still counting.
