  • Follow me on:

Chris Burrous co-anchors the KTLA 5 Morning News on weekends and can be seen reporting on breaking news during the week.

Chris started his broadcasting career in Southern California — while still attending Chapman University — at KCKC-AM and KCXX-FM in San Bernardino. KNTV-TV and KLIV-AM in San Jose, Calif., were next, followed by morning and evening anchoring duties at KEVN-TV in Rapid City, S.D.

The next move was his best, KGET-TV in Bakersfield, Calif., as morning anchor. That’s where Chris met his wife and discovered the joys of Luigi’s and Wool Growers, and other great Kern County institutions like Buck Owens. Working his way up Highway 99, Chris anchored mornings at KGPE-TV in Fresno, Calif. Our state’s capitol was home for six years as Chris anchored at KMAX-TV’s “Good Day Sacramento.” While in Sacramento, Chris also hosted newstalk on KFBK-AM and hosted a weekly program on PBS, “California Heartland.”

A big change was next, as Chris joined Tribune and anchored mornings at WPIX-TV in New York City. Finally after a journey that spanned from the Orange Circle to the Blackhills to Truckee and even the Bronx, Chris joined KTLA in 2010 to help extend the Morning News to seven days a week.

Chris is the son of a Central Valley farmer and a NASA engineer.

Chris is always looking for your suggestions for his “Burrous’ Bites” segments where he meets a KTLA viewer at their favorite hole-in-the-wall restaurant and gives it a try. Chris also contributes a regular series “Made in California,” featuring local companies that are still making it in the USA.

He is always looking for good ideas for segments for the weekends. Please email him directly at: He is also the co-president of the 6 a.m. gang; if you’d like to join, please email:
