Sports in Kansas is excited to announce the addition of Keaton Coad to the team as a reporter. Coad will serve as a sports reporter for SIK. Coad is a graduate of Olathe Northwest HS and is currently studying news and sports media at Kansas State University. This summer Coad worked with KC Current, Sporting KC, and the Kansas City Soccer Journal. At Olathe Northwest, she spent four years in their Broadcast Journalism 21st Century Program and is also a competitive athlete herself, playing multiple sports, having had a Division I athletic scholarship in. She has a huge passion for journalism, reporting and telling the stories of Kansas athletes. We are excited to welcome this rising star to our team.
“I am very excited to welcome Keaton to the team. As we continue to grow we will be laser focused on finding the best new talent in the state and we’ve done that with adding Keaton to our team. Keaton will bring an elevated energy and excitement to our team as she covers our states best athletes, teams and coaches. She’s a natural talent on camera and has a ton of experience all the way back to her freshman year of high school. Here’s a teaser, Keaton is just the first announcement of a new and expanded team that will be the best Kansas high school sports has to offer.” Sports in Kansas CEO/Founder, Chet Kuplen said.
Sports in Kansas plans on many additions this fall and will have a new and expanded look on some of its media channels. Kuplen has also elevated intern Brett Cleland to a bigger role in operations and content creation. Sports in Kansas will also work with multiple production companies and radio groups this fall to add new features to its channels.
“While we may have a new look with some of our coverage, it was time for a reset in certain departments as things have changed in the way sports are covered from when we first started Sports in Kansas 11.5 years ago. We are looking forward to another great year of coverage and want to thank all of our loyal sponsors/advertisers, fans and supporters for making us the #1 viewed platform in the state. It’s pretty awesome to cover sports in a state with so many passionate people. We’ve also expanded our “Think Before You Post” product into multiple states and colleges. We are looking forward to being in several new places and more states this fall.” Kuplen said.
