Kansas City, MO – At first glance it's a website filled with dirty pictures and racist jokes. But Tony's Kansas City also happens to be one of the most complete collections of local news stories on the internet. The man behind it is Tony Botello. He is a freelance writer and his blog is somewhere between a hobby and an addiction.

It is where he spends hours a day commentating on stories from Kansas City newspapers, TV and radio stations, and other local blogs.

Tony sits down with Sylvia Maria Gross to read some of his posts starting with one under a picture of Pee-Wee Herman falling off a bicycle.

KCUR serves the Kansas City region with breaking news and powerful storytelling.
