He grew up not too far away in Lee’s Summit, Mo and is excited to live and work in St. Joseph.
Cooper graduated from the University of Kansas with degrees in journalism and film in May 2013. At KU, he anchored and reported for KUJH-TV in Lawrence, where he won a Kansas Association of Broadcasters award for his work. He has also interned at KCTV-5 in Kansas City and for Fox Sports.
Cooper is a huge sports fan and follows the Kansas City Chiefs and Royals passionately. He cheers for KU in all sports, but also likes the Missouri Tigers (weird I know) because of his Missouri roots.
In his spare time, you’ll find him playing golf or spending time with friends and family.
Feel free to follow him on Twitter @KQ2Cooper or send him an email with a story idea.
He would love to meet you, so if you see him out in the community be sure to say hello.
