About Kris Fisher
Kris Fisher was born and raised in Augusta. Surviving his younger years in South Augusta by mostly cowering in his bedroom playing Nintendo, he eventually graduated from Butler High School (Go Bulldogs!). He spent his 20’s roaming the southeast: His first radio show was live 6 nights a week from “The Largest Nightclub in U.S.A.” Club LaVela in Panama City Beach, FL. After nearly two years of liver damage and throwing his common decency completely out the window, he moved to Jackson, Mississippi and discovered that it’s nothing like any of the songs written about it. He eventually found his way to Blacksburg, Virginia. After discovering first hand that cheering for an ACC team is far less exciting than cheering for his SEC Bulldogs, he found his way back home to Augusta by way of the 95 Rock airwaves (R.I.P.). His homecoming was short-lived as he moved quickly to Corpus Christi, Texas to enjoy a south-Texas summer on Padre Island. With the start of HD983 in 2006, he returned home with the goal of becoming a hometown radio legend like his idols growing up- Dickie Shannon, Mark Summers and “Handsome” Harley Drew. Not including a year off to pursue a dream job turned nightmare, Kris has enjoyed being a staple of Augusta radio. With the exception of spending time with his wife and three kids, he enjoys nothing more than connecting with the town in which he grew up through his midday show and weekly column in the Metro Spirit.

As we are nearing the final days of the school year, I’d like to reflect on the things I’ve learned about my kids’ schools. Here are some of my observations from over the years… There’s no threat of the paddle. Y’see, for some of our younger readers, school officials back in the ’80s (and before, […]
I’ve said it before and, man, is it ringing true this week. I have no idea what I’m doing and I think my kids are on to me. It’s appropriate that I’m feeling this way on the week before Mother’s Day. Buying Mother’s Day gifts are stressful for me. I have two great moms, my […]
The pre-concert jitters. It’s something I haven’t had in a while. I used to get ‘em before almost any concert I went to because I was so excited. It’s a major reason why I wanted to play radio for a living. I love going to concerts. Somewhere along the way, I lost the pre-concert jitters. […]
I got to do something recently that I have never gotten to do. The surprising part is that it wasn’t something like kayaking down the Savannah or riding my motorcycle down the coast or any of the other things that I’ve promised myself I’d do before I turn 40… uhh, I mean 30. No, it […]
The long 51-week wait until the next Masters Week has begun. I’ve always compared it to the feeling I get the day after Christmas: “We have to wait a whole year?!” I guess it’s obvious that I’m one of the people that actually likes Masters Week. I’ve never really understood why people complain about the […]
I feel like something needs to be addressed. It’s the ever-presence of cats. They’re everywhere! Cats in the street, cats in the window, cats in my yard making my dogs attack the blinds. It’s a cat-tastrophy! Sorry, I couldn’t resist. Now, I’m not one to tell anyone not to have a pet. But can we […]
