Born in Ft. Hood and raised in the suburbs of Dallas, Chris Grisby is proud to report for the state he grew up in. Today, Chris resides in San Antonio and couldn’t be happier to call this beautiful city his new home. A member of the Spectrum News team since June 2019, Chris finds his inspiration through the ability to see something new and interact with diverse groups of people, from different backgrounds, each day he does his job. Prior to this, Chris worked at WINK news in Fort Myers, where his journalism career began just two weeks after graduating from the University of Tampa.
Throughout Chris’s time reporting, he’s covered countless memorable stories, including Hurricane Irma and its aftermath in Southwest Florida. Witnessing firsthand the number of people impacted by the storm was shocking, especially in the aftermath of the Florida heat and humidity. Several people were left without A/C and basic needs for months. The resilience of the Southwest Florida community is something Chris describes as nothing short of an amazing experience to watch and cover.
When Chris isn’t in the newsroom, you can find him exploring San Antonio for the best BBQ joint - if you have any recommendations, let him know! Aside from that, Chris is as active as they come. He spends each morning in the gym and after work, makes sure to get outside and explore the various unique areas San Antonio has to offer.
