Christopher Ayers


Christopher started listening to public radio shortly after he picked up the keys to that '98 Chevy Cavalier back in 2004. He no longer has that car (it's kind of a funny story), but he still listens to--and now has a hand in creating--public radio programming everyday. 

Before coming to Pittsburgh in April 2016, Chris was the morning newscaster at Indianapolis member station WFYI for two years. A native of Columbus, Ind. (known for its architecture, Cummins diesel engines, and as the hometown of that guy that wears the beret on MythBusters), he's spent the majority of his life in Central Indiana and will not hesitate to tell you how absolutely amazing a place it is, and that you will surely agree if you'd just take the time to go.

Here at 90.5 WESA, Chris produced the local portion of NPR's Morning Edition and served as primary fill-in host until Jan. 2018 when he moved to weekday afternoons as the local host of NPR's All Things Considered
