Gardner is excited to be joining the KWCH12 team as the Hays bureau reporter covering Western Kansas for Eyewitness Sports and Catch It Kansas.

He joins Eyewitness News after graduating from Chapman University in Orange, California where he earned a degree in Journalism. An avid sports fan, he was a reporter for the school newspaper and television station as well as calling play-by-play for football and basketball.

During his four years at Chapman University, he interned at the NFL Network, KABC 7 Eyewitness News and the Orange County Register where he covered breaking and local sports news. In his time as an intern, he interviewed countless MLB, NBA and NHL players, coaches and fans for the nightly sports show.

Originally from Takoma Park, Maryland, he traveled coast to coast for college and is excited to be slowly making his way back across the country. Growing up he dreamed of playing in the NBA but his lack of dribbling skills ended his playing career early in high school. While his love of playing sports never died, he found a new passion in covering them as a chance to be around sports without running sprints and drills.

When he's not at a game or tracking down a story, he enjoys playing basketball, watching HBO and getting outside as much as possible. A newcomer to Kansas, he loves meeting new people and wants to hear from you! If you have a story idea or just want to talk sports, movies or TV, email him at groyce@kwch.com, tweet him @KWCHGardner or find him on Facebook.
