Joe Hickman Returns to KYTV After Heart Attack

After two months off the air, KYTV sports anchor Joe Hickman returned to work yesterday and revealed he suffered a heart attack earlier this year.

“We didn’t make a big announcement at the time because I was told that I needed to get some rest and recovery for awhile, and keep things private,” Hickman said in his first appearance on the air yesterday. “I’d never been in the hospital before even before this.”

Hickman has been a sports anchor at the Springfield NBC-affiliate since 1984. He thanked viewers and colleagues for their support, calling special attention to sports director Ned Reynolds, who Hickman said worked “full-time, around the clock, 24 hours a day, seven days a week” in his absence.

“Now I can take my afternoon nap again,” Reynolds quipped.

KYTV Will Produce Newscasts for Sister Station K15CZ Beginning Next Month

KYTV, the NBC affiliate in Springfield, MO, will produce an additional hour and a half of newscasts for sister station K15CZ, the CW affiliate, beginning August 22.

The K15CZ morning show will add a third hour from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. on weekdays. It will be anchored by KYTV’s Maria Neider and Paul Adler, with weather contributions from meteorologist Brandon Beck.

The second new broadcast will be 30 minutes of local news at 9 p.m., seven days a week. Anchors will be KYTV’s Lisa Rose and Ethan Forhetz, with chief meteorologist Ron Hearst and sports director Ned Reynolds contributing.

“KY3 has earned a reputation for outstanding journalism, dependable weather coverage and excellent community service,” president and general manager Brian McDonough said in a statement. “It seems natural to extend KY3 News to The Ozarks CW. As the pace of our lives grows even faster, access to timely and accurate information becomes more critical.”
