Chris McKinnon joined News 9 in October 2011 as a General Assignment Reporter. You can see his stories during the early evening newscasts. Chris graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science. Chris says reporting is his dream profession because he gets to meets new people and see new places every day.
A New England native, Chris has lived in many parts of the country. He comes to Oklahoma from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado where he worked his way up from a weekend anchor to week night anchor at KREX-TV in Grand Junction. During his time in Colorado Chris covered a wide variety of stories including a high-profile, cold case murder trial.
During his free time you can catch Chris cheering on the USC Trojans or watching a hockey game. He enjoys playing a pick-up game of hockey or tennis match and is a self-proclaimed "foodie."
Chris is looking forward to meeting the people of Oklahoma and hearing their stories. If you have an idea for Chris, don't hesitate to send an email.
