Out the Door in KC

When Frank Boal first came to Kansas City, his  first assignment as a sports Reporter in the market was to report on the Kansas City Kings’ NBA playoff series against the Houston Rockets in 1981.

4 years later, the Kings moved to Sacramento and Boal has been reporting the sports news ever since.

But that will end on June 29.

“When I got here I had no intention of staying,” Boal said. “I figured I’d be here three or four years and work my way back to the East Coast.”

Boal grew up in Pittsburgh and attended Villanova on a football scholarship.

“Once I had been in Kansas City for a while I really wanted to stay,” Boal said. “For me it was a perfect fit and I’ve really been blessed.”

Boal spent 28 years at WDAF until taking a buyout in 2009.

He joined KSHB in 2010 and became sports director in 2015.

Boal also has been a regular contributor for WHB radio since 2001, and will continue his role on the sports talk radio station after stepping down from KSHB.
