Meet KY3's Taylor Kauffman.

Taylor joined KY3 in November of 2017.

Before arriving in Springfield, she worked for two years as the Weekend Sports Anchor at KEVN Black Hills FOX in Rapid City, South Dakota. During her time at KEVN she won two Associated Press awards for "Best Sports Feature".

Taylor was born and raised in Olathe, Kansas, and is from a long line of Jayhawks. She followed suit, and graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in Broadcast Journalism.

Although there's no relation to Kauffman Stadium, Taylor is a huge Royals fan, but also hopes to make it to a game at Busch Stadium (she's a happily admitted bandwagon fan.) She's also a huge fan of Kansas basketball and the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Kansas girl discovered a love for hiking after living in the Black Hills, and looks forward to exploring the outdoors in southwest Missouri. Taylor danced competitively for seven years, and loves to dance whenever, and, wherever she can. You may also catch her golfing, or walking her Miniature Australian Shepherd, Leo.

She has a passion for telling good stories, and loves the creativity this profession allows.

Taylor's ultimate career goal is to make people fall in love with a team the way that she has done before. She is fascinated at how a game can bring a whole community together, and wants to be a part of making that happen here, in southwest Missouri.
