Jared has had news in his blood since he was a teenager. He has a 21-year track record in all facets of radio and television news reporting and anchoring, including breaking news, severe weather coverage, and traffic reporting. After beginning work at KFDI Radio in Wichita, KS, at the age of 19, Jared has since expanded his reporting experience into television, as well. He worked at KFDI News for 14 years before moving to the ABC TV affiliate in Wichita, where he worked for seven years. Five Forty Broadcasting is happy to have Jared on air with local news coverage for the stations.
