Chris Mueller

mueller head shot Chris MuellerAfternoons 2:00pm to 6:00pm. Chris Mueller was born and raised in Pittsburgh and has called this area home for most of his life. He grew up and still resides in the North Hills, but went to North Catholic High School. Amazingly, a college decided to accept him, and he became the only combination Nebraska/Pitt fan to attend Penn State University. Chris majored in Journalism at Penn State, and succeeded in making people angry through multiple media outlets, specifically radio and the school paper. He worked for a bit in Philadelphia, came back to Pittsburgh, signed up with the Fan, and the rest is history. When Chris is not on air, he likes reading, golfing, and cold beer, not necessarily in that order.
