Meteorologist Chris Bailey was born and raised in Salyersville, Kentucky and is very familiar with the wide range of weather conditions that affect our region.

Chris earned his BA degree in Broadcasting from Morehead State University and graduated from the Meteorology Program at Mississippi State University. He is a member of the National Weather Association (NWA) and the American Meteorological Society (AMS).

Chris started his broadcasting career at a young age. He got his first chance to deliver weather reports on television when he was a weather watcher for a Lexington TV station. While in the 5th grade, a huge flood hit his hometowm and the station let Chris do a live phone report describing the conditions. Chris would eventually get to work for that same tv station, WKYT-TV. That’s where he spent nearly 10 years delivering daily weather forecasts from 1998 to 2008.
