Kansas City, MO – Ford's F series trucks are a staple of the Kansas City economy and one of the very few bright spots in domestic automobile manufacturing. KCUR's Frank Morris speaks with the truck's Chief Engineer about a rough year, and arguably a bright future, for making pickups.

I’ve been at KCUR almost 30 years, working partly for NPR and splitting my time between local and national reporting. I work to bring extra attention to people in the Midwest, my home state of Kansas and of course Kansas City. What I love about this job is having a license to talk to interesting people and then crafting radio stories around their voices. It’s a big responsibility to uphold the truth of those stories while condensing them for lots of other people listening to the radio, and I take it seriously.

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