KXEO Staff

Chris Newbrough is our Program Director and Morning Man.

Chris was born and raised in Mexico. He readily admits to “floating around a bit” before joining the stations in August of 2004. He graduated MHS in 1984 and attended Moberly Area Junior College (now MACC). He then moved on to Northwest Missouri State University, where to the relief of his parents he finally graduated in 1993 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Broadcasting.

Chris knocked around as a media ad salesperson for awhile. He then got into radio programming briefly before moving to Macomb, Illinois in 1999 to work for a weekly newspaper. It was there that Chris discovered his love for covering the news. After a short stop in Effingham, Illinois, Chris joined the staff of the Fulton Sun in 2001.

It was here that Chris met his wife Pearl. They reside in a haunted house in Mexico with their three dogs and one cat (Chris has lots of stories, and some of them are even about the spirit).

  • Chris is a eleven-year veteran of news gathering with experience in both radio and newspaper reporting.
  • Chris joined Country 96 as a news reporter in 2004
  • Chris was News Director from 2006 – 2013
  • Chris became Program Director in 2014
