OUR TEAM

Chris has a unique assortment of career experiences and is thankful for every step. After graduating from Bellarmine University in 1997, he persisted with the school’s Athletic staff and attained the broadcast rights to their basketball property. Through 2004, Chris served as the primary radio voice for the Men’s and Women’s Basketball programs.

That spring, he opted for a change of pace and began an 8-year stint in dental sales. At first glance, the professions couldn’t be more different, yet Chris quickly discovered a commonality. “Whether it’s interviewing a coach during the rigors of the season or selling a medical practitioner on your product,” Chris states, “you have to be able to build trust and place their best interest at heart.” This creed fueled success, yet left Chris clamoring for a return to the industry that he loved.

In 2012, after sifting through mothballs, he located an archaic Bellarmine broadcast cassette and, on a whim, forwarded to the voice of the UK Wildcats, Tom Leach, for an assessment. The notion was greeted with positive feedback and began a relationship with Chris assisting the uber-successful radio program, ‘The Leach Report’ in a sales & correspondent capacity. During this ongoing chapter, Chris has interviewed a Who’s Who in sport including Jay Bilas, Dick Vitale, and a pair of Bachelor’s – past and present, to name a few.  This spawned off ‘Opposition Research,’ the UK Basketball opponent-based feature, preceding broadcast roles with Georgetown College Football/Basketball, University of Cincinnati Women’s Basketball and the UK Sports Network.

Chris cites Tom as a great mentor & lauds the direction received from current LA-Clipper announcer, Brian Sieman. “Brian was the first announcer that ever told me to ‘read more,” shares Chris. “The best broadcasters variate their vocabulary.  We have to be able to say the same thing, differently.” Chris also mentions a conversation with legendary NBA sideline reporter, Craig Sager as the most impactful. “I ran into him in Houston on his way to receive treatment. He took a few minutes to impart wisdom and kindness. His gesture was incredibly moving under the circumstance and has stayed with me.”

Chris is the CEO & Founder of GLICOD, a media company who’s focus is on providing clients with a surplus of avenues to market their product while demonstrating a growing effort to promote High School Sports.

Chris has an amazing, young daughter named Halle.
