Kansas City Still Loves Anne Peterson

She was one of the most influential local news ladies in Kansas City history and very few broadcasters have achieved her level of genuine cowtown admiration.

TKC's favorite #TBT memory about this news lady . . . Dave Letterman once joked that he was marrying her in a promo segment and locals went nuts thinking it was true.

Hoping you d-bags won't be mean in the comments, here's a nice write-up on her legacy . . .

Whatever Happened To: KCTV5 Anchor Anne Peterson - In Kansas City

Anne Peterson's storied career at KCTV5 started in 1979 at the ripe old age of 22 years old. (Her first live shot in the field was covering the Kemper roof collapse.) Less than three months after arriving at the CBS affiliate as a reporter, she was promoted to main anchor.

She's in a scene in the movie The Fury from 1978.

"Her first live shot in the field was covering the Kemper roof collapse."

It was a classic rookie newsie moment!

Peterson goes live on-air, turns to a bystander and says, "Did you expect this to happen?"

Anne has class. Compare her to orange faced Kailey Mcananey, Trumps old faked faced press secretary, who stood up and lied to the American people - well Anne is a angel and hero. Journalism is now just a lying profession, much like the legal business. Its all gone down hill.

Anne and Cheryl Moore were my favorites. Pat Petrey, he was the guy back in the 1960's before them!

And now we have the circle back ginger commie who had to pass the Bidet sniffer test to report the propaganda of the day while Uncle Joe takes a nap with a 6 year old.

I could never tell the difference between Jack Harry and Anne Peterson.

Same height; same "Karen" hair style.

I think Anne was Jack in his drag queen moments.

She needs to replace Basement Biden's flunky, Jen Psaki, who says, "I'll circle back with you," and hems and haws way too many times for a professional communicator.

Anne was very talented on TV, but let's face it, some people get hired largely on how they look. It's a sad fact about human psychology.

Ha! You hate Trump's press secretary because she constantly and brilliantly clowned the partisan press.

Biden's press secretary, Psaki, is a dog-faced pony soldier.

Jun Psaki has said over two million words since becoming press sec and has yet to actually say anything. Surprised she hasn't gotten dizzy from "circling back." 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不

Here's some of her greatest nonsensical hits:

She isn't or wasn't the Cinderella sweetie you all think she was. There is a dark side to her few know about.
