Chad Plein Career
Chad has covered numerous Cardinals and Royals World Series games throughout the years. He also covered the Chiefs at Super Bowl 54 in Miami, Missouri State in the NCAA Baseball and Women’s Basketball Tournaments, and Drury’s 2013 National Championship run. In January 2020, Chad broke the news that Bobby Petrino has accepted the position as head football coach at Missouri State University.
Chad worked as an intern for ABC News Nightline, where he gained his first practical experience in the media. In September 1998, the Midwest Bureau placed Chad squarely in the thick of a contentious home run contest between Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa. Chad, who was already a huge sports fan, believed this was the best move for his career.
After working for nearly three years as a sports producer at KSDK (NBC) in St. Louis, Chad began his broadcasting career in 2002 at KQTV (ABC) in St. Joseph. Chad relocated to Joplin for the same position at KOAM in 2004 after his contract as the sports director expired (CBS). After living in the Four States for three years, Chad transitioned into news and accepted a weekend anchor position at KY3. For five years, Chad took pleasure in visiting the Ozarks to get to know the locals and hear their stories.
Ned Reynolds, a member of the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame, chose Chad to take over the weeknight sports desk in 2012 when he decided to semi-retire. In parallel, KY3 introduced Ozarks Sports Zone to give the station a brand-new perspective on high school athletics. Since then, Chad has defeated a close friend and mentor in St. Louis three times to win four Emmys for best sports anchor in the Midwest.
Chad had a heart attack at the age of 39, necessitating open heart surgery. Since then, Chad has made the American Heart Association one of his favorite charities to support through speeches and fundraising events.
Chad places a high value on helping his community. In recognition of his fundraising efforts since moving to Springfield, Chad was named the Leukemia and Lymphoma Man of the Year in 2012 and included in the 2014 list of the 40 under 40 by the Springfield Business Journal. When Cati, Chad’s wife, was named one of 417 Magazine’s 10 Most Beautiful Women of 2015, she contributed to the fundraising efforts for GYN Cancers Alliance.
