Biography & broadcast background

Chris Reid is a voice artist and former broadcaster and stage actor in Winnipeg, Canada.


Having started on stage at the age of 11, Chris has since been involved with countless stage shows, voiceover projects, video hosting projects, and as a personality on a variety of radio stations across Canada and the United States.


Since 2015, Chris has been an advocate, donor and theatre patron in Winnipeg. He has worked with community and professional theatre organizations to help with marketing (including videos, social media and graphic design) and advertising.

In 2017, his interest from being on stage ended so he could focus on promoting the variety of talent in Winnipeg by hosting a weekly radio program, In The Spotlight, on CJNU 93.7 FM.
