Community Engagement
KMOS-TV receives first place in Children's Programming at the Missouri Broadcaster's Association

At the ceremony, which took place on June 7 the MBA recognized KMOS-TV for the production of an episode of the KMOS-TV weekly outdoor sports program Season to Season Outdoors, hosted by Tony Edgar. The program, which aired Sept. 13, 2013, featured area youth participating in the annual hunting and fishing clinic. The program was part of the series produced by KMOS-TV in cooperation with Edgar's Outdoor Sports in Versailles, Mo.

KMOS-TV partnered with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Missouri Department of Conservation to have Edgar host the event in Clinton with challenged youth from mid-Missouri. With assistance from the Lakeland High School FFA, conservation agents provided instruction in archery and gun safety using air rifles and conducted a casting contest. The Corps of Engineers water safety program provided instruction on the importance using personal flotation devices, and Edgar and professional crappie fisherman Gregg Pennington provided championship fishing lessons. Prizes were awarded in a variety of categories.

KMOS-TV and its partners were recognized by the Missouri Broadcasters Association with first place in Children's Programming for the September 13, 2013 episode of Season to Season Outdoors. Pictured with the award are, left to right, Koi Henderson, Truman Lake park ranger with the U.S. Corps of Engineers; Tony Edgar, producer and host of Season to Season Outdoors; Roy Millen, videographer; Dorothy McGrath, manager of TV and community programming; and Christy Millen, editor and producer.
