A member of the KAKE News family is making the move to one of the largest television markets in the country.
KAKE News anchor Jeff Herndon has accepted a position as 9:00 p.m. news anchor at WFLD-TV in Chicago.
Herndon's last day on the air in Wichita will be September 6th.
Herndon has been a news anchor for KAKE since 2004. During that time Herndon won three Heartland Emmy awards. "I'll be forever grateful to KAKE and the incredible people who work here," Herndon said. "Without the support and guidance of some very talented co-workers over the past 15 years, I wouldn't be in a position to take on this new challenge."
Jeff grew up in Haysville and graduated from Wichita State University.
"To our viewers, thank you for everything. I will miss the people of KAKEland."
