Roger Scholfield worked at KWCH until 1984

Roger Scholfield worked at KWCH worked in production, shot commercials during the afternoon and ran the camera on the 5-6-10pm newscasts. His weekends were spent taping Christmas Parades, community affairs programs, the First Methodist Church programs and of course, Freddy Fudd's Treehouse and Santa's Workshop with Toyboy. He vividly remembers shooting Bruce Haertl's audition, he of the bushy mustache and thick black glasses at the time. He says he has so many memories of the place he could write a book. "The safest memory I can give you is they let us do our own local music show which ran on Friday nights," says Schofield. "There were approximately 4-5 shows and we got to go out to the Kansas Coliseum and interview emerging Rock Star Huey Lewis. That was very cool." Schofield worked at KWCH for about 14 months and then went to work for Quillen Elsea Ad Agency. He then started to work for Scholfield Auto Group December 1, 1986. And 27 years later, he's still there where he's the president and general manager. Schofield is married to Jaki, and has two kids; a daughter Maddy, a junior at KU and son AJ will be a senior at Andover High. He says he will never forget that year behind the scenes at KWCH.
