Reporter Nima Shaffe, a Kansas City native, will be departing KCTV after a two-year stint to join WXYZ-TV in Detroit as a reporter, a reliable source has told Bottom Line Communications.

He will start at the Scripps-owned ABC affiliate March 18 in a move that is about a 20-market jump in size to the CBS affiliate in Kansas City.

Shaffe, a Park Hill High graduate, went on to get a degree in broadcast communications and journalism from Park University in December 2007.

Following graduation he worked for KMTV-TV in Omaha and KKTV-TV in Colorado Springs. He also worked at KQTV-TV in St. Joseph while in college and after graduation.

Shaffe was added to the “It’s Your Morning” team in September 2011.

    NICE GUY
    I briefly interacted with Nima about 10 years ago and remember him as a very a nice guy, and I wish him the best.

    Detroit… I hope he takes self-defense classes.

    PATRONIZING, DISCONNECTED
    I wish he was on between 2 and 4 am. Can’t stand him. Makes tons of mistakes and seems fake and disconnected. A little patronizing. Let’s see if he lasts. Check him out on you tube where he does the weather in some other city. Too funny.

    WORST
    The absolute worst. I have switched morning shows. He always appears un prepared and the clothes are the worst. He is also gaining weight. What was WXYZ thinking??
