St. Louis Anchor Running for Missouri Secretary of State

By Kevin Eck 

Robin Smith, the former KMOV anchor who retired Friday, says she wants to be the next Missouri Secretary of State.

“What Missouri needs now, more than ever, is a public servant who checks their politics at the door,” Smith said in a statement. “That has been my life’s work and my training. I look forward to giving Missourians straightforward, professional service as their Secretary of State.”

Smith, who announced her run Sunday morning, will run as a democrat. She had at the St. Louis CBS affiliate since 1978.
