Working in sports broadcasting has been Lee K. Howard’s dream for as long as he can remember. He is currently fulfilling that dream as a sports anchor at WKYT in Lexington, Ky. He also produces and anchors a show, Behind the Blue, that airs monthly on the FOX Sports Networks. Howard moved to the Bluegrass State in October 2011, and ever since, he’s been an avid Kentucky Wildcats fan. He has traveled to New York City, Indianapolis, Chicago, and to many SEC college towns to track the Cats.
“My career has provided me with many opportunities to interview college and professional athletes and cover major sporting events, but the thing I enjoy most about my job is telling the stories of every-day athletes using sports to achieve their dreams.”
An Emmy nominated journalist, Howard’s stories have won several state and regional broadcast awards.
Before moving to Kentucky, Howard covered sports in Texas for six years. He got his start in media doing play-by-play for football, basketball, and volleyball games at West Texas A&M. His TV career began at KAMR/KCIT in Amarillo, Texas. He then joined KLBK in Lubbock where he covered the Big 12, high school state tournaments, and professional sports.
He’s a member of the Texas Theta chapter of Phi Delta Theta at West Texas A&M, where he served as president his senior year.
Lee K. lives with his wife Kristen, WKYT’s weekend news anchor, and their Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Cooper.
