Topeka is my adopted home. I grew up in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, a city about 40 miles south of Green Bay on the Lake Michigan shore. That means I became a Packers' fan by birth!
I knew even before I was 10 years old, that delivering the news on television to people in your hometown is an important job.
I am excited to start my career in Northeast Kansas, and I look forward to meeting and interacting with our viewers.
Kansas native, former radio DJ turned news man, and lover of the outdoors
I am from Chicago, IL and fell in love with Kansas when I completed four years as a Jayhawk at the University of Kansas. I couldn't be happier to share your stories and make your voices heard. Rock Chalk!
After four decades in the newspaper business, I am now a part of the 13 NEWS team and am very excited to be here.
The best part about my job is the people - I've met some of the most amazing, inspiring people over the years and am looking forward to meeting many more and sharing their stories with you.
When I think about changing technology I always ask myself, "What's next?" Stay tuned!
I get a kick out of the unpredictability of the stories we cover daily. It's a interesting study of human sociology.
I always knew I wanted to be a photojournalist. From the first time I picked up a camera I fell in love with the idea of capturing video and sharing it with everyone.
A Kansas native that is interested in sharing the views of Kansans through a journalistic lens. I am a University of Kansas alumna and enjoy spending time with my animals while I am not working. I enjoy the social media aspect of my job as I feel it allows me to interact with more viewers.
Lexi is a Wichita native and K-State grad who has been passionate about news, reading and writing since before she could walk!
One of my favorite parts of this job is talking to school kids. The curiosity about weather always reminds me of the feeling that I had at their age. I always wonder which ones of them will become a meteorologist.
The midwest has the best weather and being able to come to Topeka is a dream come true.
Josh is studying meteorology at the University of Oklahoma. Having grown up in Topeka, he is no stranger to the crazy Kansas weather.
Weather is fascinating to me. The way that clouds develop and move, the flash of lightning and the crash of thunder, watching big flakes of snow falling to the ground.
