Sports Anchor/Reporter

Zac Choate

Zac joined KTTC as a sports anchor/reporter on August 2, 2010.  Just one day later he was sent to cover Vikes training camp, also known as Part Three: Will He or Won't He Return? The Soap Opera Surrounding QB Brett Favre.

Zac came to the NewsCenter after spending three years as a sports anchor/reporter at WHSV-TV in Harrisonburg, Virginia.  Before making the stop in VA, he was an associate sports producer at KSHB-TV in Kansas City, Missouri.

He graduated with a bachelor's degree in Communications from Avila University in Kansas City in May 2007.  Zac also played for the men's soccer team for four years. 

When he wasn't playing soccer, Zac had the privilege of working for KMBC-TV as a news intern and KSHB-TV as a sports intern, even though most people at work -- Royals fans -- would talk smack about the 1985 World Series.  Zac would immediately have to ask, "Does the name Don Denkinger ring a bell? Or, how many championships has your team won? Oh, right, the one that was handed to you."  Zac loves a great sports debate.

Obviously a St. Louis native, Zac is a die-hard Cardinals, Rams and Blues fan.  He hopes to see the Blues raise the Stanley Cup before he dies.

In his spare time, he likes to play poker, soccer, video games, watch sports, quote movie lines, try to workout and spend time with the best thing that's ever happened to him -- Ashley.

Even though Zac thinks hockey is the greatest sport on the planet, he's excited to be back in the Midwest and cover everything he possibly can in Minnesota and Iowa.
