Chris covered many high-profile stories that impacted our state and region, from the sinking of the El Faro to the Boston Marathon bombing but also gave equal care to the more lighthearted stories, such as when Robin Williams came to shoot a movie in Maine. Each story he covered, no matter how heavy or light, exciting or seemingly mundane, Chris gave it his all.
