Homelessness and Housing Affordability reporter
Chris covers homelessness and housing affordability across the Sacramento region with a focus on the local and statewide policies that shape these topics. Previously, Chris led CapRadio’s fact-checking initiative PolitiFact California, debunking misinformation throughout the Golden State.
Earlier in his career, Chris spent a dozen years writing about government and politics at newspapers across California. He covered the Capitol for the San Diego Union-Tribune. Before that, he worked as a news reporter at the North County Times in Escondido, the Lodi News-Sentinel and the Sonora Union-Democrat.
He earned his bachelor’s degree from UC Berkeley and later his master’s degree from the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism.
Chris is cautiously optimistic that his hometown San Diego Padres will someday be World Champions, but he’s not holding his breath.
