Jay joined KSHB in 2010 as the morning and midday anchor. He has also worked at stations in Memphis, Fort Myers and Clarksburg, W.V.

Kansas City NBC affiliate KSHB gave viewers of its 11:00 a.m. news more than they bargained for yesterday.
The station took a live feed from Kansas City Mayor Sly James‘ “State of the City” address just seconds before a man, later identified as Derron Black, jumped on stage, tossed a flag off the podium and interrupted James by shouting,”This man has just got through talking about exactly what the F$%# he ain’t G@#d*%$ did.”
The station cut the audio feed before anchor Curtis Jay apologized to viewers for what they just witnessed, “We, first off, want to apologize for this. This is live. Happening right now, what you’re looking at. We apologize for the profanity that was used on the air.”
Carrie Hofmann has been named news director at KSHB, the NBC affiliate in Kansas City.
Hofmann comes from WCNC in Charlotte, where she has been assistant news director for two years. Prior to that, she was assistant news director at KMGH in Denver.
“Carrie has the vision and leadership skills we believe will help 41 Action News move forward,” KSHB VP-GM Brian Bracco said in a statement.
