Early life and career

Chris Myers broke into broadcasting as a 16-year-old high school student when he hosted his own show on Miami’s WKAT radio, interviewing such sports figures as Muhammad Ali and Don Shula.[citation needed] He graduated from Chaminade High School, Hollywood, Florida, in 1977. In the 1980's, Myers hosted a sports radio call-in show on WIOD-AM in Miami before moving to New Orleans to work for broadcast station WWL.

ESPN (1988-1998)

Myers spent ten years (1988-1998) at ESPN, hosting SportsCenter, Baseball Tonight and other shows. He received an Emmy for the interview program Up Close, on which he was the first to conduct live interviews with O.J. Simpson after both his O.J. Simpson murder trial and the wrongful death civil lawsuit.

Myers earned acclaim for his live reporting during the 1989 San Francisco earthquake that took place during the World Series. He was the only on-scene reporter who stayed on the air through the night broadcasting from Atlanta during the Centennial Olympic Park bombing.[citation needed]

While at ESPN, Myers coined popular phrases such as "That deserves a 'Wow'" and "I kid because I care". He was also the first to use the term "3-ball" when describing a 3-point shot in basketball and "a hoop and some harm" when describing a basket and foul.

Fox Sports (1998-present)

In December 1998, Myers joined Fox Sports and Fox Sports Net, where he was one of the original anchors of The National Sports Report and the weekly sports magazine program Goin' Deep. In 2005, he debuted The Chris Myers Interview on FSN. In 2000, Myers joined Fox Sports Radio where he currently hosts his own interview show, CMI, which is heard on over 200 affiliates. Myers conducted the last public interview with the late John Wooden in April 2010 on CMI. The legendary 99-year-old coach told Myers he did not fear death, saying "The next life will be even better, and this one hasn't been too bad."

Myers has been the studio host for Fox NASCAR coverage since it began in 2001. He also serves as an announcer and/or a reporter for Fox NFL, Fox College Football and Fox Major League Baseball, and was a reporter for Fox's coverage of the Bowl Championship Series.

Myers has been a reporter on multiple Super Bowls and World Series for the Fox television network.

Fox NFL

Myers has worked for Fox NFL (NFL on FOX) since 2003 as either a play-by-play commentator and/or a sideline reporter.

Myers has been working NFL play-by play for Fox since 2005. Among moments that Myers called include: The Los Angeles Rams' return to playoffs in 2017 and Kyle Shanahan's first win as head coach of 49ers.

He has a full NFL play-by-play schedule with 3-time Super Bowl champion Daryl Johnston and sideline reporter Laura Okmin. He coined the phrase”fresh set of downs” and “new set of downs” when broadcasting a teams first down.

Myers' previous NFL on FOX partners include: Tim Ryan & Ronde Barber.

During Fox's coverage of the NFC playoffs and the Super Bowl (when FOX has the rights to it), Myers joins Joe Buck, Troy Aikman & Erin Andrews.

He presented the New Orleans Saints with their first ever NFC championship trophy after they narrowly defeated the Minnesota Vikings 31-28 on January 24, 2010.

During a Detroit Lions and New Orleans Saints game, on September 13, 2009, Myers made a remark about linebacker Larry Foote's decision to leave the perennially strong Pittsburgh Steelers to play for Detroit, "That's like going from dating Beyoncé to Whoopi Goldberg!"[2][3][4][5].

Myers visited the American armed forces in Qatar on behalf of Fox Sports, and gave a live broadcast with the armed forces on the pre-game show before the New Orleans Saints played the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day 2010.

On July 14, 2012, Myers called his first MLB on Fox game with Eric Karros when the New York Mets played against the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field. Myers called MLB games for Fox in 2012 and 2013, before moving back to the studio for the 2014 season.

In 2014, Myers began hosting MLB Whiparound, a nightly show aired weeknights on Fox Sports 1 featuring quick turnaround-highlights, news, and analysis live from Los Angeles.

Fox NASCAR (2001-present)

Myers along with Jeff Hammond and Michael Waltrip, formerly hosted NASCAR RaceDay, Pizza Hut Prerace Show, and NASCAR Victory Lane during Fox's coverage of NASCAR. His first NASCAR race was the 2001 Daytona 500 where the finish was overshadowed by the death of Dale Earnhardt. Days before the beginning of the 2012 season, his son Christopher was killed in an auto accident. Myers took a bereavement leave and returned to the broadcast two weeks later. Starting in 2019, Myers' FOX NASCAR schedule was reduced to just the Daytona 500 only.
