KAKE Goes After City Official for Comment About Flood Coverage

By Kevin Eck 

Wichita ABC affiliate KAKE went after a city communications director after he posted a sarcastic message on his personal facebook page about how the local stations covered recent flooding.

“According to all three gushing Wichita TV news stations tonight, we need to be afraid of ankle deep water,” wrote Evans. “Be afraid. Be very afraid. (sarcasm) I realize more than most they have a difficult job to do, but seriously?”

KAKE spent the first four minutes of its 6:00 p.m. show Tuesday on the story, saying it was telling viewers about the dangers of rising water Monday night during a flash flood warning.


The station has deleted the story from its website.
