KCTV Kansas City Adding 8 Full-Time Journalists

The demand for local news in the Kansas City metro area continues to grow, and with that demand, Gray Television’s CBS affiliate KCTV is increasing its news team.

The station is adding eight full-time positions to its newsroom. All eight positions, which include a mix of on-air talent, news production and digital positions, are currently posted on the station’s website.

“Kansas City deserves a news team that can provide comprehensive coverage across our local communities no matter the time of day,” said Josh Morgan, KCTV news director. “The addition of these eight positions, along with the incredible talent already in this building, will allow KCTV 5 to be a leader in this community for years to come.”

This fall, KCTV will add a newscast at 3:30 p.m., the only one of its kind in the Kansas City television market, it says. That newscast debuts on Monday, Sept. 11, directly following the debut of another new program, InvestigateTV+, a 30-minute news magazine show produced by KCTV’s parent company, Gray Television.
