Kris Erik Stevens
Kris Erik Stevens became a legendary success almost overnight as the youngest Rock Radio Personality in Chicago, and was presented with Billboard Magazine’s ‘Radio Entertainment Award’ for his exemplary on-air talent while at WLS-Chicago, a 50,000 watt flamethrower with a signal that covered 46 states at night. During his brief but celebrated radio career, he was highly rated on major market stations like CKLW-Detroit, WQXI-Atlanta, KQV-Pittsburgh, WMYQ-Miami, WCFL-Chicago, and KIIS-FM-Los Angeles. Seeking a new challenge, he opened Kris Stevens Enterprises, an LA based Broadcast Creative Services company specializing in advertising, recording, imaging, and syndicated radio program Specials. The firm began winning awards for innovative Radio/TV advertising and creative production of celebrity driven radio programs featuring major movie and music stars of the era. Stevens conceptualized and hosted “Entertainment Coast to Coast” and won the Gold Medal Award for “Best Entertainment Radio Program Worldwide” which aired on the CBS Radio Networks. His unique style and extraordinary range enabled him to become a sought after voiceover actor internationally. Over the years he’s earned a stack of impressive credits including commercials for Heineken, Mercedes Benz, Life Lock, Wall Street Journal, Wells Fargo, Delta Airlines, Pontiac, Starbucks, Orkin Man, AMC Theatres, US Marines, ATT and a host of others. As a TV Network promo guy, he’s performed for ABC, NBC, CBS, HBO, ESPN, MTV, AMC, Cinemax, CNN, NFL, Disney, A&E and more. Kris has been heard on movie trailers, infomercials, cartoons, and narrations for a myriad of clients worldwide. And Kris has been the Image Voice for countless great radio and television stations and networks over the years. Perhaps he became best known as the unmistakable Signature Voice heard daily on thousands of screens in every movie theatre across America as the “Voice of “Movie Tunes.” A first ever in-theatre music/entertainment program that he and Robert Kardashian launched in 1994. Kris also earned the Crystal Communicator “Award of Excellence” for “Exceptional Station Voice Imagery” plus his company received an additional Award for their 12 hour Holiday Special entitled ‘The Magic of Christmas.
