Alan Shope - KCTV5

Alan Shope

Alan Shope was raised on the southwest side of Wichita, Kansas and attended Wichita South High School & Campus High school.

Alan grew up playing all sports but baseball is where he excelled. After playing two years of baseball at South High, Alan was recruited after his senior year to play college baseball, but soon gave up his dream of playing professionally and transferred to Wichita State University, graduating in 1991.

Beginning his television career as a videotape editor/photographer at KSNW in Wichita, Alan got his first on-air job at KSNT in Topeka. He worked as a News Reporter, Sports Reporter, Outdoor Sports Reporter and Ag Reporter. Winning numerous awards in Topeka got him noticed by KSHB in Kansas City. Alan worked there for seven years, winning more awards and was twice nominated for an Emmy. When he had the opportunity to move back to his hometown of Wichita, KS, he jumped on it. After nine years as KAKE-TV's Sports Director, Alan moved back to Kansas City and currently works as a News/Sports Reporter/Photojournalist at KCTV5.

In his spare time, Alan enjoys playing golf and basketball. He spends as much time as he can at his small lake cabin in South Central Missouri. Alan also enjoys watching both of his children excel in sports.  Besides his work in broadcast news, Alan has also written four books, three of which are in print and currently owns a US Patent and trademark.
