Another Joplinian Shows Up in Springfield
Former KODE anchor Brian Richardson has moved from the "4 States" to the "Ozarks", as he is now the weekend co-anchor at KOLR/KSFX in Springfield. He has replaced former weekend anchor Chris Grogan. While it is obviously a step up for Mr. Richardson I have to say that I am not a fan of his anchoring style. (His voice honestly kind of puts me to sleep.)
Richardson's move to Springfield is not an isolated one. He has been preceded by several Joplin tv alum, including Jennifer Denman, Chad Plein, and Tracy Turner. This isn't anything new, however. KY3's Lisa Rose, former KY anchor Cara Connelly, and former KSPR anchor Jaime Ceretta also came to Springfield via Joplin. I am sure that there are others who have traced that same path over the years that I am overlooking. It is also likely there will be more to come in the future.
