Back in November, FTVLive FIRST told you that longtime WDAF (Kansas City) Sports Director Al Wallace and longtime Sports Reporter Jason Lamb accepting buyouts at the Tribune station.

It appears that Tribune is turning to the news guy to fill that big hole. The station announced that Morning Anchor/Reporter Rob Collins will transition over to sports.
