You'll see Rob Collins on the Anchor Desk Weekend Mornings and Evenings and reporting from the Metro on Thursday and Friday. You'll also see a pair of cowboy boots on his feet. Rob says he's "A proud native Texan who is thrilled to be in Kansas City. "
Collins comes to K.C. from Champaign, IL where he spent 10 years as a Sports Anchor/Reporter and 6 years as a Morning News Anchor. He also points outs he left some boot prints in Rockford, IL and Sherman, TX.
Rob's worked the Super Bowl, The NCAA Basketball Championship, Several Indy 500's, a couple of Rose Bowls, and a cache of chili cook-offs. Collins says he "punched his passport covering news stories in Sweden and Mexico City and actually jumped out of a perfectly good airplane for a feature story."
Collins owns several awards. He says "They're in my desk along with a host of hot sauce bottles, a pack of protein bars, and several sleeves of gum."
Rob graduated with honors from East Texas State University in 1995 with a major in Radio/Television. Collins notes he's spent plenty of time on a theater stage, which he says he "uses to act busy when the boss is watching."
Rob loves sports, bacon, BBQ, anything grilled, chips and salsa, ice cold beverages, country music, dogs, cowboy boots, and his wife and two kids.... but he contends "not necessarily in that order."
