Jared has had news in his blood since he was a teenager. He has a 25+ year track record in all facets of radio and television news reporting and anchoring, including breaking news, severe weather coverage, and traffic reporting.

After beginning work in radio in Wichita, KS, at the age of 19, Jared has since expanded his reporting experience into television, as well. He eventually moved to the ABC TV affiliate in Wichita, where he worked for seven years before returning to radio.
