KMBC 2017 Overall Excellence
Kansas City was plagued with local tragedy that became national headlines in 2016. We mourned with our community over the violence and killings of local police officers killed in the line of duty and the horrific tragedy at Schlitterbahn Water Park where 10 year old Caleb Schwab lost his life.
Our devotion to covering hard news includes a story of a possible case of mistaken identity in a 20 year old case, controversial animal testing, and a brave family’s heart wrenching story of a daughter addicted to heroin.
Finally, one of the biggest stories of the year, if not the biggest, was the race to the White House. Political reporter, Micheal Mahoney, continues our commitment to our viewers with dedicated coverage - live debate coverage, fact checking, and in depth investigations.
We hope you enjoy our entry for Overall Excellence and thank you for your consideration.
