Broadcaster, Vice President of the Circus Historical Society -USA
Chris Berry’s two passions are broadcasting and the circus — though not necessarily in that order. Growing up just outside of Sarasota, at an early age Chris had the opportunity to meet some of the great circus stars of the 20th century and the fire was lit. By the time he was 14 volunteer at the old Circus Hall of Fame in Sarasota and a member of the Circus Historical Society, where he now serves as Vice President. His interest in circus history and expertise in the area of circus lithographs blossomed as he learned and was mentored by some of the most respected circus historians of the time. After a career with CBS and ABC where he held executive positions in Los Angeles, Washington DC, New York and Chicago – Chris now is an Executive Vice President at iHeartMedia where he divides his time between gathering and distributing the news of today, and the studying the history of the circus in America.
