Chris Kane - KATV - Breaking News, Weather and Razorback Sports

Chris Kane



Chris is a Little Rock native who currently anchors Daybreak at Channel 7. He returned home to The Natural State in 2010 to join the Channel 7 Sports team and moved to Daybreak a year later.

Chris was born in Little Rock and moved to Jacksonville, FL when he was ten years old. With his parents both attending the University of Arkansas, Chris is a lifelong Razorback fan and is thrilled to be able to cover his favorite team.

While in Florida, he attended Bishop Kenny High School and went on to graduate from the University of Central Florida with a Radio/Television Degree.

Before becoming Weekend Sports Anchor, Chris was hosting FLW College Fishing on VS. Network with Jason Harper from 2009-10. During this time he was able to travel the country hosting different fishing tournaments and was able to learn how to ad-lib on the spot during the shows. He says this time was an amazing experience being able to learn from Jason and work with some of the most genuine people in the world.

Although he joined the station officially in 2010, Chris completed 3 internships at KATV in the Sports Department and learned "more than I could ever imagine" from Steve Sullivan and Dale Nicholson.

As far as Daybreak goes, there is not a better crew around. Chris says the hardest part of the morning is the drive to work(alone). Once at the station, the time in the morning FLIES BY! From the crew behind the scenes, to co-hosts Melinda and Alyson, work is truly fun in morning.

When he is not at the station he enjoys being with family, playing/watching sports(football, basketball, baseball) and wakeboarding(In AR) & surfing(when in FL). Chris also loves to go and relax on the beautiful lakes around the state.
