Chris Jensen is back at KMRY after a 22 year absence. Chris, then known as “Chris Gallagher” was the Saturday News Announcer from 1994-1997. After leaving KMRY in 1997, she worked for her family’s material handling company for 11 years and as a realtor. Radio was in her blood and in 2018 she returned to the station that gave her a break as a paid intern while she was in college. After spending six months in the sales department, Chris once again found herself behind the mic. She now fills in for Ricky and Susan and in the newsroom for Cary.
Chris is an avid fan of the Chicago Cubs, and a huge lover of animals. Her German Shepherd, Zeus, often accompanies her to the station. Chris lives in Cedar Rapids with her husband, Justin, a Cedar Rapids Firefighter, Zeus the dog and Eli the cat. When she isn’t cheering on the Cubs or working at the radio station, she enjoys traveling and starting 25 projects that she will likely never finish!
