Her fans also praise her for hosting a series of primetime reports called “Battleground America.”. She surely is an inspiration to many future-to-be journalists.


She has been gaining success in her career and professional life. But what about her dating life? Her fans sure want to know,

As we came to know, Chris Jansing was dating Robert Jansing before they got married in 1982 and started living as husband and wife.

When the couple got married, they both turned out to be the talk of the town. However,  rumors are running around these days about the couple being divorced, as some tabloids have proclaimed.

However, we are not entirely sure of what is happening between the couple since both of them have kept their respective personal lives private. Furthermore, they have no children as far as we know..

Chris took her husband’s name i.e. Jansing after the marriage.  She went for the surname because she felt the word 'Jansing' was much easier to pronounce as compared to Kapostasy. Her born name is Chris Ann Kapostasy.

They seemed happily married, and everybody was happy for both of them. We wonder why there are rumors about their divorce.

Moving on from the rumors floating around, Chris is going steady with her professional life, thanks to her amazing talents and charming smile.Chris Jansing has received an Emmy Award for the coverage of the 1996 Olympic Park bombing at the Olympic Games in Atlanta.

Currently, the 59 years old Chris Jansing is all set to speak at the Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce’s annual dinner and deliver a keynote address. The dinner will take place on November 17, 2016. The reception is scheduled to start at 6:00 p.m and Jansing will present the keynote at 7:45 p.m.
