Chris Villani

Chris has been working for WEEI in various roles since 2009. He started as the Flash Guy for the original "Dale & Holley Show" and has hosted weekends, weeknights, and after the Patriots' Super Bowl win over the Seahawks. He is frequently heard on pre- and postgame during Red Sox broadcasts and has contributed to WEEI.com.
 
In addition to his duties at WEEI, Chris works full-time as a news reporter for the Boston Herald, covering crime, the courts, and politics. He covered the 2016 presidential race interviewing everyone from then-candidate Donald Trump to still-Senator Bernie Sanders. He's reported from both presidential conventions and from inside the courtroom during the Aaron Hernandez double-murder trial. 
 
Chris also works part time at ESPN Radio anchoring "SportsCenter AllNight" and providing pre- and postgame coverage for Major League Baseball, NFL, NBA, college football, and college basketball broadcasts. In whatever spare time he has left, Chris is constantly frustrated by golf and the guitar, and is an avid lover of travel and country music.
