Chris Goble

Lecturer, Communication Studies

Rm 310 Wallace Hall 309-457-2216


Chris Goble started his media career early in life. Beginning as a disc jockey at a local radio station while in high school, he spent 12 years spinning records for adoring fans.

Chris earned his master’s degree in speech communication/radio TV from Eastern Illinois University in 1996. Since then, he has worked as news director/instructor at Northern Illinois University’s student television center in DeKalb. After three years, Chris left to become an Instructor in media at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

After another three years, he went to work at WQAD-8 in Moline, Illinois, as a news videographer. In 2003, he became night manager/distance technology manager at Western Illinois University in the Quad Cities.

In fall 2004, Monmouth gave this farm boy from Central Illinois a go as an instructor in media technology and adviser to MC-TV.

On the personal side, Chris is married and has a daughter. He not only teaches media but pursues media as a hobby. He enjoys movies, TV and old radio shows. His DVD collection is excessive (this information comes from his wife Susan) and he is always willing to discuss the appalling nature of Greedo shooting first in Star Wars Special Edition. Chris enjoys a good joke (as this bio should indicate) and hopes students always realize his door is open.
