WHB Cuts Ties With Kevin Kietzman
After being pulled off the air following comments about Kansas City Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid’s dead son, Union Broadcasting’s 810 WHB Kansas City has parted ways with host Kevin Kietzman.
Complicating matters was that Kietzman was a partner in the company. He held a 6% stake in Union Broadcasting and served as Sports Director in addition to hosting the afternoon “Between The Lines” show. He spent ten years at “Fox 4” WDAF-TV as a reporter and sports anchor before moving over to radio.
The following statement was issued by Union Broadcasting President Chad Boeger:
Union Broadcasting, Inc. President, Chad Boeger announced today that Union Broadcasting and Between the Lines host, Kevin Kietzman have mutually agreed to part ways and allow Kietzman to pursue other opportunities.
“We would like to thank Kevin for his dedicated service over the last 22 years,” Boeger said. “Kevin has been a valuable member of the Sports Radio 810 WHB team. We wish him all the best on his future endeavors and good luck moving forward.”
“It’s been my honor and privilege to host Between the Lines for the past 22 years and I’m proud of being a founding partner of this great local company that is so committed to our community,“ Kietzman said.
We want to thank our clients, partners and loyal listeners for their continued support.
As is consistent with our policy on personnel matters, Union Broadcasting will have no further comment.
