KSHB-TV ANCHOR MARK CLEGG ANNOUNCES HIS RESIGNATION FROM 41 ACTION NEWS
(Kansas City, Missouri) Longtime KSHB-TV anchor Mark Clegg will sign off the air for the final time on Wednesday, July 23rd. That evening’s 6:00 PM newscast will be his final one in Kansas City. He has accepted a public relations position with Hines, a Houston-based real estate/development company, as Director of Media Relations and Communications. It will be a homecoming for Clegg, who grew up in Texas and started his career there.
“It took a remarkable opportunity to get me to leave the anchor desk and Kansas City. Joining Hines allows me to take my media skills in a whole new direction. It's also a great opportunity to be closer to family in Texas. But I will sincerely miss my Kansas City family - both at 41 Action News and our viewers, whose trust and friendship I have cherished for these past 12 years,” said Clegg.
Clegg joined KSHB in 2002 and has a strong commitment to the Kansas City community. He is a 2004 graduate of Leadership Overland Park and is a member of Church of the Resurrection. He has served on the Board of Directors of Kansas City's Rose Brooks Center – a safe haven for women and children working to break the cycle of domestic violence. He also gives his time to Literacy Kansas City, Higher MPact and the ALS Association - Keith Worthington Chapter, to name a few. Carrie Hofmann, News Director for 41 Action News said, “We are excited for Mark and his new adventure. He has spent the past 12 years dedicated to this station and this community. He will be missed.”
