Chris Gallagher is excited about being the producer of The MorningBlend. Chris has spent his entire life surrounded by influential women; including his wife, four daughters, his mother, mother-in-law, sister, and three sister-in-laws. So if you’re counting, that’s potentially 11 ladies talking girl talk, asking for shoe opinions, and needing jars opened.
So he is right at home surrounded by all the women of The MorningBlend team.
Chris is used to being the “token guy” and because of that he brings a unique perspective to the Blendviewers. As the Producer of The MorningBlend, Chris uses this “experience” to run the day-to-day operations of the show.
Chris works directly with Executive Producer Kayla Thomas, and the production crew, to make sure our guests needs are met. Basically while there is chaos behind the scenes, Chris keeps things looking smooth on the air!
He spends time working on the Blend website, performing any and all manual labor jobs (like opening jars), documenting the action behind the scenes, and being grateful to have Mike around.
Chris brings over fifteen years of broadcast production experience to the Blend. Chris was one of the primary newscast directors for KMTV for nearly ten years. As a newscast director, Chris’ responsibilities included coordination and management of production crews during live newscasts, telethons, breaking news, and weather coverage.
Along with his work as a director, Chris also produced and organized all aspects of KMTV’s Creighton basketball coverage. Although he will miss road trips to the depths of Missouri, Iowa, and Illinois, Chris is excited to once again become a Bluejay fan and enjoy the games courtside.
Born in San Francisco, California, Chris moved to Nebraska with his family while in grade school to experience “The Good Life”. Chris is a graduate of Millard South High School (Go Indians!!) and a graduate of the University of Nebraska at Kearney. Chris has been married to his wife, Angie, for more than 14 years. They have four beautiful daughters: Meghan, Emma, Olivia, and Norah!
Chris enjoys all sports, especially San Francisco Giants baseball, San Francisco 49ers Football, Husker Football, Bluejay Basketball, MMA events, and getting in a round of golf when he can. When he is not checking the latest scores, Chris is catching up on new episodes of The Blacklist, NCIS, The Player, and Blindspot.
