TKC BLOG COMMUNITY DECLARES 2017 KANSAS CITY JOURNALIST OF THE YEAR: FOX4 MORNING ANCHOR MARK ALFORD!!!



Mark Alford is an inspiration to our blog community for many reasons but his work ethic stands out above all.

He rises early to bring Kansas City the news and then hustles throughout the rest of the day if his social media profile is any indication.

More to the point . . .

- Mark Alford ranked high in recent Kansas City Mayoral polling where no other newsie came close to his share of mind.

- He's serious when he needs to be but jokes a great deal of the news which longtime watchers appreciate.

- His airport video that simply offered a look at the KCI boarding process was one of the very best bits of social media content during this year's election cycle.

Mr. Alford has successfully merged TV fame with social media connections and developed a remarkable audience that helps to keep locals informed.

Nice.

He absolutely deserves it.

I like his style, not just his suits.

Really liked the tough questions he asks during his interviews when newsmakers come into the studio.

Oh gawd! Certainly doesn’t say much for TKC’s community. This guy is like the Eddie Haskell of news anchors, always running his mouth, thinking everything he says is cute. I think Lauren Halifax and Abby Eden are both great, but couldn’t watch either of them being paired with this asshat.

Cant stand him. The guy has one job and cannot do it: read the fucking teleprompter! He constantly stumbles and fumbles over the words. It is so annoying. It's like he can't read.

Has he ever got on top of Loren or Abby?

You have it wrong. Loren gets on top of Abby.

Agree with majority here, he's an arrogant asshole. He's the reason why I don't watch fox4 in the morning.

O.K. I think this is just an early April Fools joke. Next you'll be telling us that Gina Bullard from Channel 5's morning team finished second. She sounds like Simon from Alvin and the Chipmunks sister and with her glasses might be his fraternal twin.

Only geriatric shut-ins care about, or watch TV news people. The rest of us are too busy.

Love watching Mark in the mornings. Always starts my day off with a smile.

I'm a big fan. He is the most sensible newsman around. He dares to speak his conservative mind fearlessly. This gives me hope. More than just a pretty face.

Really like Mark. Interesting choice.

I think most journalists couldn't do what he does and in the future TV news is going to be much more important.

the closet yet ?

8:39,

So Abby is straight (verily so).
You didn't mention Loren.
Inquiring minds want to know.
See how Leez the Sleez brought local news to the bottom of the toilet?

Interesting question. I’ve wondered about that myself.

I like Mark Alford and have met him in person as a guest on the morning news. He's friendly and approachable.

The Captain said...

This guy does it all.

He's always hustling.

Knows the KC news scene.

I like the cut of his jib!
