Sean McDowell brings more than 25 years of television experience to the FOX4 News team.
Sean has experience working in television news in Charleston, WV and Lexington, KY. Sean was primary sports anchor at a 24-hour cable news station in Orlando and Tampa, Florida, where he covered the NBA Finals, a Super Bowl, three Daytona 500s, the PGA Tour and more. He was also managing editor/reporter at another Kansas City television station, and was Emmy-nominated for sports reporting in 2001 while working in West Virginia.
Sean joined the FOX 4 Kansas City news team in June 2012. Since joining on, he’s covered memorable news stories such as the triple murder trial of Frazier Glenn Cross and various stories involving crimes, politics, and community affairs across the metro. Sean’s sports background has come in handy, as he’s served as a reporter during the 2014 & 2015 World Series with the Kansas City Royals, NASCAR coverage at Kansas Speedway and co-anchoring FOX4 Hy-Vee Gamenight, our weekly Friday night high school football roundup with Harold Kuntz.
Sean is a proud native of Ashland, Kentucky, who owns degrees from both the University of Kentucky and Eastern Kentucky University. He also attended graduate school at Marshall University, and was used as an extra in the feature film “We Are Marshall.” He and his family live in Johnson County, where he’s often seen playing bad golf and tending to his beloved tomato plants.
Sean is a thankful member of Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, KS, where he volunteers his time assisting with the church’s Technical Arts unit. Sean serves as an officer with the Kansas City chapter of the University of Kentucky Alumni Association, and a caddy/golf parent with the local U.S. Kids Golf Tour and CentralLinks. He and his wife are parents of a competitive teenage golfer affectionately known as “Moose,” and an adopted cat from KC Pet Project named Sasha.
