Meet sports anchor Mark Spillane.

Mark joined KY3 in July of 2018 after working for two years at WJFW-TV in Northern Wisconsin.

Mark grew up in a rural part of New Jersey (yes, that exists!) where he found a love for the outdoors. He graduated from Quinnipiac University (Go Bobcats!) in Connecticut in 2015. At Quinnipiac, Mark helped the student-run television station (Q30TV) win several college broadcasting awards in both sports and news categories. After graduation, he worked for nearly a year on the assignment desk at MLB Network and NHL Network in New Jersey. At MLB and NHL, Mark was lucky enough to win a Sports Emmy Award as an Associate Producer with MLB Tonight.

In 2016, he moved to Wisconsin to start his career as a reporter and anchor in the Northwoods of the cheese state! While in Wisconsin, Mark covered the Packers, Brewers, Wisconsin Badgers and even got to cover Super Bowl LII in February of 2018. In 2017, Mark received a 2nd place Wisconsin Broadcasters Award for “Best Small-Market Sportscast.” While he’ll miss the beautiful Wisconsin summers, he’s excited to trade in the bitterly cold winters for the summer heat in the Ozarks!

When he’s not at work, Mark spends time working out or hiking and hunting. He grew up as a New York Giants, New York Yankees and New Jersey Devils fan, and he’s looking forward to covering the Chiefs, Cardinals, Royals, Blues and all of the sports Springfield has to offer!
