Chris Reed is one of the "local boys." Born and raised in Mamou, Chris Reed has always had a love for South Louisiana, and perhaps that explains why he is still here. After high school graduation, and yes he did graduate, Chris chose to pursue a college career in the field of Science. Then one day Chris decided he needed a job that offered something different every day he would show up to work. Thus, Chris changed his major to Broadcast Journalism and attended LSU. Upon graduating, he worked part-time in radio and even did an internship at a local TV station. Needless to say, Chris fell in love with radio and stuck with radio broadcasting until he got full-time position in 2002. Chris has been in radio broadcasting since 2002, and he doesn't see things changing anytime soon. What makes his job so motivating is simple...Its you the listener. Chris absolutely loves stepping out from behind the mic, and meeting all of his listeners. After all, his greatest radio moment thus far in his career came when he was able to get a young girl backstage to meet her idols. The young girl had just lost her mom to cancer, and Chris' niece forfeited her backstage pass so that the young girl could go instead. As luck would have it, the artists' tour manager over heard everything that was going on and Chris still got to take is niece backstage. Chris is often asked why radio and not anything else. The answer is simple, he gets to help others that may be less fortunate or others that may be going through difficult times. Chris has always wanted to be in a position to help others, and at Hot 107-9 he is now in that very position. He recently came back from life changing experience when he attended a radio cares seminar at St. Jude Children's Hospital in Memphis. As Chris would state upon his return, his career has now made a full-circle. While away from the mic, Chris thoroughly enjoys being with his family and friends. Chris has a deep passion for music, and loves listening to and collecting new music. Chris DJs every weekend in clubs, and has a passion seeing others enjoy themselves while he does what he loves. Music is Chris Reed's life, so maybe the career change wasn't such a bad thing after all. Aside from family and music, Chris is passionate about sports. When not at work, Chris attends several football and basketball games. He also enjoys playing golf and working out. Chris Reed seems to follow a simple theory, "You don't why things happen, but one day you will have a better understanding of it all, and it is then you will realize you are better off today than you were yesterday."
