Wichita Reporter Lily Wu Heads to the Competition

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

In Wichita, Kan., popular reporter Lily Wu, who’s been missing from the air since December, will resurface in the same market as a reporter and anchor.

It’s now clear that Wu left KAKE after nine years as a reporter to go to the competition at KWCH.

She made the announcement on social media this week. Wu explained that in this role she’ll co-anchor the 4 p.m. show from Monday to Friday on KWCH’s sister station, KSCW, plus turn a story everyday that will air during the evening shows.


Wu took a six-month break from TV because of her noncompete contract. Since that’s expired, she’ll be allowed back to work in the market.

She will start her new job on June 22.
