Prior to moving to Kansas City, Post was the 10 p.m. anchor at the ABC affiliate in Lexington, KY. She had the rare chance to cover Kentucky Basketball runs, fashion at the Kentucky Derby - as well as interview county clerks who grabbed international attention for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Her reports linking the firefighting profession and cancer spurred state and county lawmakers to legally categorize them as line of duty deaths.
Post got her first TV job in KC on KCTV5’s sister station KSMO, where she was a sideline reporter on the High School Game of the Week. During this time she was also a freelance reporter at the CBS affiliate, WIBW-TV.
