Who is Chris Jansing from MSNBC?

She is perhaps best known for having a significant media presence as the senior national correspondent of NBC News’ cable division, following a number of jobs at several other media companies throughout her career. She has been active in the sometimes lucrative journalism business since 1980.

Early Life and Education
Chris was raised in a family of 12 children, of whom she was the youngest. Her Roman Catholic parents are Joseph and Tilly Kapostasy, and they raised their children in a pious fashion. Unfortunately, there is virtually no information concerning her early youth, neither schooling, interests or hobbies, but she was apparently keen on obtaining a degree in political science. However, while she was studying for the said major at Otterbein College, she became employed at the college radio station, which at some point made her change her interests and switch to a broadcast journalism major, in which she ultimately obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree at the said institution in 1978.
Being 61 years, Chris has had close to 40 years of journalistic experience, and has managed to earn certain awards for her contributions to the media world. First of all, she received an Emmy for her coverage of the 1996 Olympic Park bombing during the Olympic Games in Atlanta, then received the “Best Person” award from the New York State Broadcasters Association for the report she made on hunger in New York State. Ultimately, she was inductedvinto the New York State Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame in June 2016.
As for Chris’ romantic involvements, she doesn’t seem to be too keen on sharing such information with the media. Still, it is known that she dated the chemist Robert Jansing for a while before they married in 1982. The two maintained their marriage for a few years, ultimately divorcing at an unspecified date, unexplained. Her ex-husband used to run an analytical chemistry laboratory, also having worked as a research scientist at the New York State Department of Health. Chris has no children, but decided to keep her husband’s surname after the divorce. As she herself said, it is easier to pronounce than her original surname, and is thus more fitting for her profession. At the moment, it doesn’t look like Chris is dating anyone.

Her body shape is generally described as fit, while her hair color is dark blond and her eyes are deep hazel. Lastly, her bra, dress and shoe sizes are unknown.
Social Media Presence
Due to the major influence of social networks, it is nowadays a regular thing for active reporters to nourish a close and active relationship with their fans, for the sake of increasing the popularity of the TV networks they’re employed at, and thus their own net worth. Chris herself seems to be a regular subscriber to this celebrity trend, as she is present on most popular social media networks, save for one. Her Facebook account is currently followed by over 35,000 people, while her Twitter account boasts a significantly higher 70,000 followers, but doesn’t have an Instagram account at the moment, or it’s not accessible to the public.
