Chris-Tina rocked promotions at Chicago’s classic rock station “The Loop” in her hometown. As a Jayhawk in Kansas she dove into cinema to participate in fast-paced and exciting film festivals. Her exploratory nature brought her to Steamboat Springs to enjoy the endless adventures the valley has to offer. Soon after she dove into the airwaves as a Radio Personality reaching the entire Yampa Valley. Excited and ready to go, you’ll see Christina out in the field and you can wake up knowing she is working her magic broadcasting the Steamboat Morning Show.
You may know Scott Parker as the “Chief of the Chief” but we know him as an all around great guy. He is a devoted husband and father. When he isn’t being Dad of the Year, running The Chief Theatre, or entertaining you live on The Steamboat Today show, you can find him juggling with “We’re not clowns” which he has been single handedly holding together for almost 20 years. I love, I mean, Scott Parker loves living in Steamboat and the brilliant people like Kasey Lane and Kelly Anzalone whom he gets to work with. He considers them his creative beacons and constant source of wisdom and guidance and says his life would be bleak and meaningless without them.
When she’s not in front of our cameras, Katie is the Director of Education and Artistic Administration at Strings Music Festival. This is her fourth ski season in Steamboat Springs so you might say she’s only got 16 years left before she’s a “local.” Prior to joining SteamboatTV, Katie has worked for the Steamboat Ski & Snowboard School, Colorado Mountain College, Steamboat Pilot, and what feels like 100 other places while she fell in love with the Yampa Valley. She’s also a member of The Chief Players and the Tongue-in-Chief improv troupe. Beyond her utter good looks and poise behind the lens, Katie admits she really loves the brownie sundae at Rex’s American Grill, but let’s keep that to ourselves.
