Jacob joins Eyewitness Sports after spending the last seven years in Amarillo, TX at KFDA-TV. He grew up in Bushland, TX, and is thrilled to become a member of the Sunflower State and find out what makes Kansas sports fans tick.
Jacob began his career in news (as a morning reporter) before quickly working his way into sports, where his true passion has always been. Jacob worked his way to the Sports Director position where he spent the last 5 years. From the biggest sports stages in the world to the local fields featuring the best youth athletes, he loves covering it all. Jacob's playing career ended as a benchwarmer in High School, so watching much better athletes perform has always made a lot of sense.
He spent many years on the radio as well as television, providing in game action for various sports and several sports talk shows along the way. Jacob loves to talk sports, so feel free to spark up a debate if you see him out and about.
Jacob is a graduate of West Texas A&M. He is a huge Texas Rangers fan, but has always had a soft spot in his heart for the Royals.
He is joined by his wife Michelle, as well as a dog (Jaxie) and cat (Rilla). He says he is very excited to bring his family to Wichita.
