Chad is the newest member of the KY3 Sports Department; actually, he's the first hire in the sports department since the '80s.
Chad joined the KY3 News team in January 2007, moving to Springfield from Joplin. A native Missourian, Chad has completed his "counter-clockwise” tour of the Show-Me State.
He began his career in St. Louis as a sports producer at KSDK-TV. Chad then moved to St. Joseph in 2002 to become a news reporter. A few months later, he became the sports director. After two years at KQTV, Chad moved south to Joplin to be sports director at KOAM-TV and KFJX. Chad also has a radio background. He produced and had some on-air segments at ESPN Radio in St. Louis during the late '90s.
In June of 2012, Chad was named as the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Man of the Year. Chad was honored at the chance to local support families battling blood cancers. The thousands of dollars in donations Chad has raised will go to finding a cure.
