His viewers wonder where he is going next and if they will still see him on television. Here’s where you can catch Chris Spears.
Chris Spears Exits KCNC-TV
After receiving a BS in Meteorology from Metropolitan State University in Denver in 2005, Chris Spears embarked on his forecasting career. He then attended Mississippi State University and received his MS in Geosciences and Applied Meteorology in 2013.
Spears joined KCNC-TV in 2014 and has been part of the weather team at CBS4 Denver since then. Besides serving as the weather producer and reporter, he reports from the Mobile Weather Lab and coordinates the station’s Weather Watchers and Junior Weather Watchers programs.
While meteorology has been Chris Spears’ first love since he grew up watching The Weather Channel, he has also pursued other aspirations. In addition to teaching kids, he’s been working on building up his little shop for five years.
Life update – I’m moving on to my next chapter. It is something that has been in the works for about 5 years now. If you find yourself in Olde Town Arvada – stop in and say hello! Who knows, maybe Rosie Belle and Daisy Mae will be there too! pic.twitter.com/5JBLryVp5K
