Meet KY3's Linda Simmons
I came to KY3 News as a reporter in November 2007. Here in the Ozarks, I have covered stories on a variety of issues, including crime, the economy, agriculture and the environment. I received a 2016 Emmy award for my work in the newscast covering the death of Dee Dee Blanchard and criminal charges against her daughter Gypsy, once thought to be handicapped. It's one of the most memorable stories I've covered, along with other high profile murder cases, the aftermath of the Joplin tornado and the controversial proposal of a horse slaughter plant in the Ozarks.
Before coming to the Ozarks, I spent more than four years at WIBW-TV in Topeka, Kansas. During my time in northeast Kansas, I produced newscasts, reported, and anchored the morning and noon newscasts.
My college education included two years at Hutchinson Community College in Hutchinson, Kansas and I completed my bachelor's degree at Washburn University in Topeka.
I grew up on a primarily wheat and cattle farm in south-central Kansas, one of six children. Those who knew me as a shy child likely never would have guessed that one day I'd stand in front of a TV camera and bring the news to thousands.
I love the beauty of the Ozarks, and enjoy hiking the trails and floating the Ozarks rivers. I enjoy singing at my church, dancing and spending time with family and friends. I'd have to say my favorite food is dessert!
