(adastra.fit.edu) – Chris Bonanno ’08, ’13 M.S., recently took on the role of senior editor and reporter at Space Coast Daily. There, he covers breaking news and local events throughout Brevard County, writing stories and producing live and recorded video content.

He also gives play-by-play and color commentary at local sporting events, hosts a daily weather report and occasionally broadcasts weather live.

“I gave many live weather broadcasts, in particular, as Hurricane Dorian threatened our area recently,” Chris says.

Chris was born and raised on Long Island in New York and remained there until he was 8 years old, at which point he moved to Brevard County, where he’s been ever since.

He began his professional journalism career at Florida Today, where he spent several years working his way up from a freelance reporter to part-time sports assistant to a full-time breaking news reporter.

In 2016, Chris decided to take a break from journalism to pursue his passion for teaching.

He spent two years teaching English and social studies at Cocoa High School along with a stint at Johnson Middle School in Melbourne teaching English. Chris has also given back to his own place of study, working as an adjunct professor at Florida Tech.

“I taught University Experience at Florida Tech, and I enjoyed it a ton!” Chris says. “It was great being able to teach at the school after spending so many years there as a student.”

Chris completed his undergraduate degree in environmental science with meteorology option, a field that incorporates several scientific subjects but through which Chris focused on meteorology.
