Drew Shirley Joins KPLC as Sports Director

Drew Shirley is the new sports director at KPLC, the NBC-affiliate in Lake Charles, LA.

Shirley joins the station after a two-year hiatus from the television business. He is a former sportscaster at KKCO in Grand Junction, CO KVUE in Austin and, most recently, KXII in Sherman, TX.

“I am so happy to be a sports guy again and to be able to stay close to home,” Shirley told Houston media blogger Mike McGuff. “[Last week] was my first day back on the air, and there’s just nothing like that feeling when the red light goes on.”
