Introduction

Derek Schnell is an Executive Producer at KMBC. That means he works with producers, reporters and anchors to help bring you important, accurate news and weather information on KMBC 9 News at 9 p.m. on KCWE, KMBC 9 News at 10 p.m., as well as interactive content on KMBC.tv.

Derek joined the KMBC news team in 2012. Previously he worked at KOCO in Oklahoma City, serving in a number of positions while covering tornadoes, wildfires and a variety of breaking news events.

Derek started his broadcast career in high school in St. Louis, before attending the University of Missouri Journalism School.

He spent time reporting and anchoring before shifting his focus behind-the-scenes to producing newscasts.

Even though he’s from the east side of Missouri, he’s happy to be back in his home state, where it’s an honor to serve viewers in the Kansas City area and cheer for the Royals, Chiefs and Sporting KC.
