Chris Pope comes to News1130 from our sister-station 570News in Kitchener, Ontairo. He grew up in Palmerston, Ontario before taking off to Hamilton, St. Catherines and Toronto for school. He studied broadcasting at the College of Sports Media under such personnel as Jim Van Horne, Elliotte Freidman, David Amber, Norma Wick and Roger Lajoie. Before getting into broadcasting, Chris spent a summer in Penticton working for a hockey school. Hockey and sport in general has always been his major passion. He played four years in the Junior ranks before retiring to the StrayCats (Men’s League). Chris enjoyed his time as the Colour Commentator for the Mississauga St. Michaels Majors of the Ontario Hockey League in 2009-10. He also spent time calling OHA games. When he’s not at the station, Chris is either working on his website, thegoodpoint.com or chasing around his little niece.
