Chris Parker

A native Minnesotan for all of his childhood, Chris made the revelation that he should try this radio thing out after seeing a commercial for a radio school (Brown Institute, Mpls, MN) at 2:30 am in his dorm room at college (which he was failing at the time).  He packed up everything he owned and moved the next day.  He started at a station in St. Cloud, MN (104.7 KCLD) doing nights where he was affectionately known  as “Lackey Boy”.  He was then recruited by a station in Tallahassee, FL (HOT 104.9, WHTF) and after a couple of years the recruiting call came once again . . . this time from the desert . . . Phoenix, AZ.  He continued his night jock journey (104.7 KISSFM, KZZP) for another two years when he decided it was time to make the move to mornings and also go back to his grown-up name “Chris Parker”.  The folks over at MIX 96.9 (KMXP) gave him a shot at his first job doing mornings which went on for six years until he got a call from 98.7 The Peak (KPKX) across the street and a new chapter began. 

He now lives with his wife Melisa and their two dogs in Phoenix, AZ and also fronts the seven piece band the Chris Parker Project.
