Today’s show features a surprise guest from Tom’s past that he didn’t even know was coming.  No, it isn’t Cy.

Twin Cities Live welcomed co-host Chris Egert to the show in April 2013. Mandy Tadych, Twin Cities Live Executive Producer, says, “You can’t create or fake chemistry on-air so when I was searching for a co-host I was really looking for someone special who could match Elizabeth’s spark. Chris emerged quickly as the natural fit. He has a charm and connection all his own, but also brings out the best in Elizabeth. As a father and husband, Chris adds a whole new perspective to our team and we’re ready to take the show to new levels.” Chris grew up in Armour, South Dakota, but spent many holidays, vacations, and summer breaks with family in southern Minnesota. “So while I’m not technically a Minnesotan, I’m about as close to a Minnesotan as you can get!” declares Chris. Chris started his broadcasting career at a radio station in Huron where he was a student and athlete by day and a country DJ by night. After graduating from Huron University, he was an anchor/reporter in Rapid City, Sioux Falls, Omaha, Orlando and Seattle before joining the 5 Eyewitness News team in May 2012.
