Chris Bath was born and raised in Sydney’s west, growing up in South Wentworthville.
She has been a journalist and news reporter/anchor since 1988.
Chris began her career at Sydney's Radio 2UE after completing a Communications degree at Charles Sturt University, Bathurst.
In 1989, she jagged her first television news job at Prime TV, Albury, then moved to Newcastle and took on a similar newsreading /reporting role at NBN Television for almost five years.
She reluctantly left Newcastle for Channel Seven, Sydney in 1996, just so she wouldn't get to 50 and wonder "What if?"
Chris spent the next 20 years at Seven, in many different anchoring roles, from reading news to interviewing politicians on “Face to Face” & other public affairs shows, reporting for "Witness" and hosting "Sunday Night".
She was the live anchor for rolling network coverage of breaking news from floods to earthquakes, mine disasters and bushfires, elections and even Royal weddings. It's a job that's taken her around the world, interviewing Presidents and Prime Ministers and also tangoing to ACDC under a mirror ball on Seven's "Dancing With The Stars".
Chris loves being a journalist but says her most challenging and rewarding role has been motherhood. Her son Darcy is an avid birdwatcher, aka "birdnerder".
Chris says they are the only family that goes to Bali on holidays to visit the Nusa Dua Sewage Works.
Since leaving Seven in July 2015, Chris has been freelancing and made her radio host debut with 702 ABC Sydney, filling in for Richard Glover on Drive.
