At KAKE, we enjoy telling stories about the people and places of KAKEland and why they’re so special. In fact, they’re the HEART of what we do. Every Friday night in our 6:30 newscast, we profile someone or something that makes our home a great place to live and raise a family. We like to call it, the Heart of KAKEland. We hope you’ll join us each week for these special profiles. If you miss one or want to share a story with others, we’re compiling them all on this page for your convenience.

If you know a person or place we should highlight, please CLICK HERE to let us know.
