Chris Gailus is known as a famous Canadian television host. He is most famous for his work at Global BC.
Chris Gailus was born on October 27, 1967. Chris graduated with a degree in Journalism from Mount Royal University, where he achieved academic excellence and played on the basketball team. Chris was interested in the field of journalism ever since his childhood. He was confident and sure of himself when choosing journalism as his career path. It was no surprise to his friends and family that he majored in Broadcast Journalism. He also got into the Dean’s List for Academic Excellence during his college tenure.
To this day, Chris remains thankful to his basketball coach, Bob Rose, who “took a chance on a skinny high school kid from northeast Calgary to bolster his roster on the Mount Royal College, as it was then, Cougars men's basketball team."
Chris Gailus is married to his wife, Jane, and they have a son named Will. He has been married to fellow news anchor Jane Carrigan since the year 2000. Chris fell in love with Jane and it was love at first sight. After spending a lot of great moments with each other Chris asked Jane to spend her life with him. They are happily married and have been with each other for more than eleven years.
Their son, William Alexander Gailus was adopted by Chris and his wife in August 2011. On that day, Chris tweeted: “So thrilled to announce the arrival of our little boy, William Alexander Gailus on Aug. 2. Adoption is official today!”
Chris spends his leisure time traveling to different places in the world along with his wife. Some of his favorite destinations include Mexico, London, and New York.

During the year 2000, the Canadian television news anchor traveled to the United States of America to anchor a morning newscast at the ABC Affiliate at Dallas, Texas.

In 2003, Chris hosted the Good Day New York show at WNYW. This show was undoubtedly the peak moment of his career. On May 1st, 2006, he came back to Canada and joined the Global News Family once again. Chris remains an iconic news figure, with a wide range of admirers and fans worldwide.

Chris Gailus is an advocate of literacy and he gives substantial support to Room to Read. This organization lends its support to constructing libraries and educational schools in many countries around the globe.
To give some wise words to his former college, Chris spoke about his career in his alumni address, “Over the past 25 years, I've covered some amazing stories and met the most interesting people. I've lived in Dallas, Texas, and New York City. Since coming back to Canada in 2006, I've anchored the No. 1 newscast in BC where there is never a dull moment in politics, the environment, and transportation. None of it would have been possible without the early investment my instructors and mentors made in me at Mount Royal.
If there's one thing that truly stands out about the quality of education at Mount Royal, it's the people. By taking a genuine interest in the lives of their students, they help focus their skills and abilities. The encouragement I received from Al and others (you know who you are!) will stay with me forever. It's why I'm so proud to be a graduate of Mount Royal and an advocate for its programs. I can't wait to see what the next 25 years of storytelling will bring.”
