Chris McManamy, 30, was born and raised in St. Louis, MO and still calls it home. There is no bigger St. Louis Cardinals fan on the planet than Chris. He became the newest co-host of the shoot on August 4th, 2013 from the listener-voted co-host search. He is an avid long time listener of talk radio and podcasts. In April of 2013, Chris took it upon himself to start his own podcast called The Terrible Tech Show. It’s a very very low budget (low as in no budget) tech type show, but he also discusses anything on the table that’s relevant, and you might catch him bitching about anything.
Professionally, Chris is an IT Project Engineer for a reputable St. Louis based IT company. He has been working in the field for almost a decade. There is a good chance if you have an IT/computer related question, then Chris can probably answer it.
Personally, Chris is happily married (8 years in September 2013) to Mandy, and they have a daughter, Jessica.
“I am honored to be part of The Shoot family. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the great listeners, friends, and family that voted for me to be in the co-host chair. I’m relatively new to radio hosting and had a bit of practice with my own show. Over time I think Gary and I will do great things for The Shoot. I am looking forward to all the upcoming live shows and working with Gary on a weekly basis (and then some). I think we have a lot in common and share a lot of the same perspectives which will make for a great dynamic. Thank you everyone for listening and contributing to the show. This is going to be a lot of fun.”
