KRIS KOSACH began her broadcasting career in radio, working at stations across the U.S. before being tapped as an MTV VJ for their all-music MTV2. Subsequently, Kris hosted the Emmy winning music-technology series "AudioFile" for TechTV before being promoted to cover tech news, gaming and Hollywood. Kris' work has taken her around the world, from Japan to South Africa, and to every music hotspot around the US for which she was a regular contributor to ABC News and CNN, among other national outlets.
Kris is as comfortable on a red carpet as she is jumping out of an airplane. So when the Travel Channel asked her to test extreme sports gear, she jumped right in... literally. From co-piloting fighter jets to cave diving; from ziplining over Central American jungles to fishing in Montana, Kris has been there done that.
As a Lifestyle Expert, Kris has represented Fortune 500 companies such as Johnson & Johnson, and Oracle on live television. She has taught Journalism to thousands of students from all over the United States at the esteemed Newseum in Washington DC, and written for a number of multi-platform media outlets. She was also part of the start up team to launch the US News & World Report consumer site, rankingsandreviews.
These days, Kris has her feet firmly planted on the ground writing, and producing her podcast, Text Prose & RocknRoll, the only podcast devoted to the chronicling the history of popular music as told by musicians and music journalists. When she's not producing, or doing select on-air work, you can find her enjoying the great outdoors. Read more about Kris on LinkedIn and Wikipedia.
