- KMBC 9 NewsReporter
Peggy has been a member of the KMBC 9 News staff since 1982, following graduation from Iowa State University with a degree in journalism and mass communications. She has amassed several awards for excellence in broadcast journalism, including two Emmies.
Two of Peggy's most memorable assignments were trips to El Salvador and Croatia, but she says the chance to meet new people every day and experience life all around the area from the perspective of its residents is the highlight of her job.
Peggy says there couldn't be a job with more variety - fires, murders, gardening (one of her passions), a child prodigy... anything could be on tap for the day. And then it can all change on a dime when there's breaking news. "It's what keeps me on my toes, aware of the world and in touch with our community." According to Peggy, "It's been a wonderful choice of careers."
