Chris Barnes hails from the New Jersey Shore and has been behind microphones across the Northeast for more than 30 years. Prior to joining WNEW at its inception in early 2012, Chris worked at WSYR in Syracuse. That followed his work at Fox News Radio, where he covered national news including at the White House, Capitol Hill, and post-Katrina New Orleans. He’s also worked at XM Satellite Radio.
Chris immersed himself in radio during his college years at Marist in Poughkeepsie, NY, getting his start as an intern at New York’s WABC. That was followed by stints on radio stations in New York’s Hudson Valley. He was then on-air at several Cape Cod radio stations for 15 years before moving to Maryland in 2001. He’s a proud father, a Facebook addict, and a rabid Boston Red Sox fan.
