KSN News Sports Director
Chris Arnold joined the KSN News team in July 2013.
Chris has worn many hats in his years at KSN. In August of 2018, he made the transition from news to sports, taking over as Sports Director.
In his time in the Sunflower State, Chris has covered several major sporting events, including the Kansas City Royals appearances in the 2014 and 2015 World Series and two Kansas City Chiefs playoff appearances.
He has gone near and far to cover four NCAA Tournaments and has been front row to see the success of the Kansas Jayhawks, Kansas State Wildcats and Wichita State Shockers basketball teams.
While the college and pro teams are a lot of fun, Chris enjoys telling the stories of the high school athletes, whether it’s on the gridiron, the hardwood or the diamond.
Before making his transition to sports, Chris spent five years as a Multimedia Journalist at KSN, covering a wide range of stories, including the Fairmount Park Attack, Hesston Excel Plant shooting and two different occasions where tornadoes hit the town of Eureka.
Chris is a graduate of the University of Mississippi (Hotty Toddy! Go Rebs), where he served as a sports anchor/reporter for their daily run newscast.
He would spend his first six years in television news in Shreveport, Louisiana, where he worked as a News Photographer, Multimedia Journalist, Editor and Live Truck Operator at KTBS-TV.
During his free time, you can catch Chris attempting to stay fit at the gym, listening to r&b music or rooting on his Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta Braves, Portland Trailblazers and Ole Miss Rebels (Hotty Toddy!)
