Chris Warner | Reporter

Chris Warner reports for KOAM & FOX14 covering the City of Joplin, Jasper, Barton, and Vernon Counties. In addition to his reporting duties, you can catch him filling in on the anchor desk from time to time.

Chris joined the KOAM team in January of 2017. He comes to KOAM after spending several years in retail management across the Joplin area. Before that, he spent nearly five years as a photographer/reporter at KSNF.

In his career, he’s covered several breaking news stories, including the Anderson Guest House Fire, the shooting at the Micronesian congregation in Neosho, and more recently the Duck Boat incident in Branson.

A Joplin native, Chris has had a passion for broadcasting that goes back to age 5 when he hung a news logo he made on a wall and repeated the news he just watched on TV. He’s conducted more than 5,000 interviews in his lifetime with Governors, Senators, mothers, fathers, and even 5 year olds.

He took his passion for broadcasting to high school where he anchored and reported for the launch of Joplin High School’s JET 14 in 2005. There, he won the school’s first ever First Place for News at the Missouri Southern Student Showcase for a story on the school district’s upcoming bond issue.

Now he brings that passion every night to the stories of the four-states, to your stories. Chris considers it an honor and privilege to tell those stories.

Chris is married to Amber, a Carthage native. Together, they have three children that Chris considers the most important story of his life.
