Christian Hartnett

Multimedia Journalist

As a young teenager, Christian threw himself into the world of broadcasting, specifically as an on-air personality, journalist, and sports play-by-play voice. The path was not clear at the time, but consistent effort led him to more and more opportunities.

While attending Chapman University, Christian jumped at every opportunity he got to practice his skills in professional environments. He was a television news reporter for a small station in Orange County, Garden Grove Channel 3. He was the play-by-play voice for Long Beach State baseball, basketball, and volleyball.

Shortly after graduating, Christian became a professional television news reporter on the beautiful Central Coast of California. He worked for KCOY Channel 12, the CBS affiliate for Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties. He shot the video, wrote the script, and edited the finished product for each one of his stories. Christian quickly became recognized as a rising talent in the television news scene.

In 2014, KPIX-5 CBS San Francisco offered Christian a reporter position at their station. Christian became the youngest reporter in the SF Bay Area, the #6 news market in the country.

Christian is now pursuing another challenge: using the skills he's learned over many years to live a lifestyle on his own terms.
