There’s only one, Chris Plante!

Chris was assigned variously as Pentagon Correspondent, Senior Producer for National Security Affairs, Military Affairs Producer and as an assignment editor. He traveled extensively for CNN covering defense related stories from Saudi Arabia in 1990 and Bosnia in 1995, to Vietnam, Indonesia, Africa and the remote corners of the former Soviet Union.

Chris received the Edward R. Murrow Award from the Radio and Television News Directors’ Association (RTNDA) for his reporting from the Pentagon during the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001.

Chris formerly hosted his own program on The American Life television network, and nowadays makes frequent appearances on various cable news networks including the Fox News Channel, CNN, and MSNBC.

Representing the third generation of his family that has been “on-the-air” in radio and television, Chris brings a unique world-view and largely conservative/libertarian values to his role as a talk show host.

Marching in lock-step with no politician, Chris says his political party is “Practi-crat”, “…because of my distinctly practical political leanings.”
