To begin with, he was raised in Rockford, Illinois; his father Knox was a well-known theatre professor. The family moved to Colorado Springs when Chris was a teenager, where he was educated at the General William J. Palmer High School, in which he covered sports news working in high school television. The Denver Press Club awarded him the Alan Berg Memorial Journalism Scholarship when he entered the University of Colorado, from where Fowler graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1985. While still a student, he worked as a host and producer of a weekly show for cable television, then completed his internship in the sports department of KMGH-TV.
Concerning his professional career, he started as a production assistant and a sports reporter at KCNC-TV. In 1986, Chris joined ESPN in which he held the position of reporter and host of the “Scholastic Sports America” program. In 1990, he joined the “College Game Day” show in which he served as a host. Somewhat controversially, in 1997 Charles Woodson won the Heisman Trophy beating Tennesee’s Peyton Manning – the fans of the latter blamed ESPN and Fowler, who handed the trophy to the winner during the award ceremony, with Chris abused by the fans of Tennessee. Afterwards, “College Game Day” avoided working on the campus of Tennessee. Regardless, his net worth was well established.
It is worth mentioning that he hosted other programs on ESPN too, including “College Basketball”, “Summer X Games”, “Winter X Games” as well as anchoring the tennis tournament broadcasts of the French Open, Australian Open, USA Open and Wimbledon. In 2014, Flowler started hosting a weekly presentation of prime time broadcasts of National Collegiate Athletic Association “Saturday Night Football” aired on ABC, and he also became the annual host of the presentation of the Heisman Trophy. More, Chris Fowler is also the host of the ESPN biography program “Sports Century”.
