Christos "Chris" Winter (born 2 November 1989) is an Australian television presenter and news reporter. He is most well known for co-hosting the Australian music television show Hit List TV[1] on Network Ten and Southern Cross Ten and as a news reporter for Nine News.

Early life[edit]

Winter was born on 2 November 1989, in Mount Gambier, South Australia, before moving to Brasilia and London due to his father's work commitments. Winter attended school at Pembroke College in Adelaide,[2] before moving to the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia.


Before his career in television, Winter was a competitive road and track cyclist. During his short career, Winter won a national championship with now professional cyclist Jack Bobridge and also represented Australia at the Youth Olympic Games.[3]

Winter started his television career at the age of 20, working as an intern news reporter at Channel Nine News. Under the guidance of more experienced journalists, including anchorwoman Eva Milic, Winter continued to learn the trade before successfully auditioning to be a guest host for the Australian wide music television series Hit List TV, which is broadcast on Network Ten and, in country areas, Southern Cross Ten.[4]
