In the first of two in-studio forums, Steve Kraske welcomed candidates Mayor Mark Funkhouser, businessman Sly James, and former Councilman Jim Rowland to discuss their campaign platforms and the major issues surrounding this election.


When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.
