Bio
AU’s first Investigative Broadcaster in Residence, Chris Halsne has been on television for 30+ years. He’s managed special-projects units in Seattle, Denver, and Oklahoma City. In the past two years alone, he’s been awarded the Society of Professional Journalists Sigma Delta Chi award for investigative reporting, three National Press Club awards, 4 Heartland Emmys, and a Regional Edward R. Murrow award. One of the top animal-rights reporters in the country, Halsne has been honored with four Genesis awards from the Humane Society of the United States for his undercover exposés. A documentary filmmaker (100 Miles to 40), fiction author (To Suffer is Human), and podcast contributor (Up and Vanished, Season 2), he takes a multi-media approach to every investigative news idea. Halsne is married to an accomplished ultra-runner who sells virtual-reality surgical teaching simulators. They have two daughters.
