In career moves that continue to be lateral at best: Kacie McDonnell has accepted a job to be the host of Sporting KC* TV (SKCTV!). From the release:
Sporting Kansas City announced today the hiring of KSHB-TV, 41 Action News reporter Kacie McDonnell as SKCTV’s new network host. McDonnell will anchor Sporting Kansas City’s pregame and postgame shows and conduct in-game interviews from the sidelines during locally televised matches in 2015.
“This is a dream come true,” McDonnell said. “I’ve always thought that if I could get a melting pot and throw sports, news and entertainment into it, I’d have my dream job. Now, I have that and I look forward to working with the SKCTV crew this coming season.”
While working for Sporting Kansas City, McDonnell will continue to work in her current position on KSHB-TV. She can be seen weekday mornings from 4:30 a.m. to 7 a.m., providing traffic updates and reports.
This is a dream come true. I bet.
*In Kacie you’re wondering, Sporting KC is an MLS team. That’s soccer. A soccer team from Kansas City.
