Steve Albritton Questions About his Career
Where were you working before you joined KMBC?
KATC-TV 3 Acadiana’s News Channel (ABC), Lafayette, LA
What’s the hardest part of your job?
The hardest part of my job is absolutely any story that deals with harm coming to kids or families losing a loved one to violence. It never gets easier talking to families after it happens or reading through court documents and you get the full picture of what happened.
What’s the easiest part of your job?
The easiest (and most fun) part of the job is interacting with the community. Every now and then we are asked to appear at different events and it’s always great to meet your viewers and get to know their stories a little bit. Sometimes sitting at the desk you forget just how many people you reach each day. I love meeting everyone!
What do you like most about the Kansas City market?
Kansas City feels like home to me. I’m originally from Carmel, IN just north of Indianapolis. KC and Indy are nearly identical in so many ways. The moment I got here I knew it was a place I would enjoy. There is so much going on everywhere that it’s tough to try and experience everything. The plethora of BBQ makes me very happy as well!
What’s something interesting and fun about yourself that people may not know?
I was a college cheerleader. That experience turned into teaching summer cheerleading camps across the midwest during my summers, and eventually it took me to Europe to teach cheerleading on U.S. military bases in Germany, Italy and Belgium. While in Louisiana at my first news station, I took over my first program and coached the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajun college cheerleading squad for 2 1/2 years.
Who is your favorite music artist and what is your favorite genre of music to listen to?
My favorites are probably Drake & Lil’ Wayne. When I do listen to music it’s mainly Hip Hop and R & B. Over the past year or so I’ve subscribed to tons and tons of podcasts so I usually fill my time catching up on a podcast from NPR, Radio Lab, or Star Talk with Neil deGrasse Tyson.
