KMBC will be bringing on a pair of new reporters in mid-April, sources have told Bottom Line Communications.
Stephanie Ramos (dark hair) will be joining the ABC affiliate from WIBW in Topeka, while Haley Harrison will be joining KMBC from NewsChannel 8 in Washington, D.C.
Born and raised in New York City, Ramos was an assignment editor at Raycom’s WIS-TV in Columbia, SC, before joining WIBW in 2007 as a reporter and weekend anchor.
Ramos is a Captain in the U.S. Army Reserves after joining the military in 2002 while still a student at Iona College, and was deployed to Baghdad, Iraq, in 2008.
While in Iraq she continued to act as a journalist whenever she could and upon her return produced a half hour special which aired on WIBW, chronicling her year “To Baghdad And Back.”
Harrison comes to KMBC from Washington, D.C. where she has spent the last 1 1/2 years where she shot, edit and wrote stories for NewsChannel 8 and sister station WJLA. She also spent three years with WHSV-TV as an anchor, reporter for the 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts at the Harrisonburg, VA station.
A 2006 University of Kansas journalism graduate, Harrison joined 6 News in Lawrence following graduation for 16 months.

      I heard KMBC left downtown besuace they wanted to house their helicopters in the same location as the studios, and this was difficult near the convention center. At least KMBC doesn’t have their studios out on Shawnee Mission pkway I’ll never understand that one. I think only Fox 4 and KCPT are downtown now (as far as television) is that right?

  2. You are getting a great reporter. We love Stephanie Ramos..

    Channel 9 you have a great reporter and she will do a great job for you. Channel 13 lost a great reporter.

    I’ll never understand how all media ouettls aren’t located downtown. It seems that they would want to be at the center of the action. Not near Swope Park or in Mission or worse.This goes for radio as well.
