KCAU Appoints Sports Director to News Anchor, Adds New Sports Director

After 24 years serving as KCAU‘s sports director, Tim Seaman (right) is sliding his chair over a bit to co-anchor the station’s nightly newscasts.

The Sioux City ABC-affiliate announced this week that Seaman would replace longtime anchor Larry Wentz on the 5, 6, and 10 p.m. newscasts. Wentz is currently recovery from liver transplant surgery.

With Seaman moving to news anchor, KCAU has tapped Travis Morgan, a veteran of the Sioux City market, as his successor on the sports desk.
