Meteorologist Chris Spears joined CBS4 as a weather producer in March 2014 and currently reports weeknights from the Mobile Weather Lab. He also coordinates CBS4’s Weather Watchers and Junior Weather Watchers programs.

Chris gained an interest in weather at a very young age when The Weather Channel came on air in 1982. He’d sit for hours watching it with his grandma and grandpa. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in meteorology right here in Denver at Metropolitan State University in 2005. In December 2013, he earned a Master of Science in Geosciences and Applied Meteorology from Mississippi State University.

He started his broadcast journalism career here in Denver as a weather producer at KMGH-TV before moving on to a news and traffic anchor for Newsradio 850KOA. He was also a morning show producer at KDVR-TV.

Chris teaches weather and climate classes at his alma mater, Metropolitan State University, and is also a volunteer weather observer with CoCoRaHS, the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network.

As a native of North Little Rock, Arkansas, Chris has lived in Colorado since June 2000 and considers it to be home. When not at work or following the weather, Chris loves to travel, do projects around his house and enjoys his dogs; Lucy Lu the Basset Hound and Daisy Mae the Dachshund.
