Viewers of Colorado Springs ABC affiliate KRDO-TV might have noticed a new face on broadcasts this past week. Say hello to Chris Larson, the station’s newest meteorologist.
Larson fills the AM and noon meteorologist spot left open by Katie Donovan, who announced last week she was moving to Columbus, Ohio, where her husband accepted a news-producing job. Donovan joined KRDO in November 2017. She’s an Ohio native.
Larson comes to Colorado Springs from Charlotte, N.C. For the past five years, he worked as a meteorologist and morning show host at WBTV, the CBS affiliate in Charlotte. Before joining WBTV, Larson was chief meteorologist for 10 years at the ABC affiliate in Reno, Nev.
An avid skier since the age of 8, Larson met his wife, Meliss, a Denver native, while they were working for the Heavenly Ski Resort in Lake Tahoe in 2001. The couple, he said, is excited to be in Colorado Springs and look forward to all of the outdoor adventures that the Pikes Peak region has to offer.
