Chris Howden is a renowned radio producer and broadcaster from Canada. He works at CBC Radio One as the co-host of “As It Happens”, a popular program where exclusive interviews with newsmakers are held.
He has been the show’s lead writer and producer for a long time, and he has occasionally filled in as an announcer when Jeff Douglas, the show’s previous co-host, was absent. In addition to that, he has hosted the Living Out Loud documentary series on CBC Radio.
Howden was born and raised in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada. He has worked almost his entire life in this beautiful country and he now lives in Toronto with his family.
Howden stands at an average height of 5 feet 8 inches.
Howden graduated in 1992 from the University of Toronto with a bachelor’s degree in English and Drama. He also holds a Bachelor of Arts in Radio and Television from Ryerson University.
Howden is a married man. He and his wife, Jennifer Canham, live with their daughter, Alice in Toronto. Jennifer has been very supportive of her husband and she’s probably one of the reasons that Chris is thriving in his career.
Howden earns an average salary of $85,637. His net worth is estimated to be in the region of $1 million – $3 million. His job at CBC is his primary source of income and Chris works every day to create a sustainable livelihood.
For the past ten years, Howden has written for the program in addition to working as a producer, director, and writer. He has been in charge of continuing the show’s pun legacy among other things. Howden has worked with CBC Radio
for his entire career.
He has also provided commentary for This Morning and hosted the documentary program Living Out Loud.
He considers it a blessing that he works two jobs, one as a presenter of Living Out Loud and the other as a writer and guest host on As It Happens. Howden worked on This Morning and Sounds Like Canada throughout the course of his tenure at CBC Radio, so it’s unlikely that he’s the only one to blame for their cancellation.
He started working for the CBC in 2001 as a researcher for the special show Tuning In, which celebrated fifty years of CBC Television. In that capacity, he assisted in the program’s archive video selection and endured almost forty hours of mind-numbing Front Page Challenge.
He may currently be the nation’s leading expert on that program, yet he never gets questions about it. He bartended before going into journalism to get ready for his future job as a radio personality. If you tell him what’s in an Old Fashioned, he can still make a mean one.
Chris did his elementary and high school studies in Ontario Canada. He later enrolled at the University of Toronto, and Ryerson University in that order.
