New Sports Director Hired in KC

Scripps owned KSHB has named the person that will replace longtime Kansas City sports anchor Frank Boal.

Boal is stepping down at the end of the month and the station announced that Mick Shaffer is going to be the guy replacing him. 

Shaffer comes to KSHB from Spectrum Sports – Kansas City, where he has worked as a sports anchor and reporter for several years.  He’s covered the Royals, the Chiefs, KU basketball, and every other pro and college team in the Kansas City area.

Shaffer is very active on social media and as you know, that's what the consultants says is the in thing these days.
