With more than 200 credits to his name, Koechner says he knows how fortunate he is to be a working actor.

David Koechner's career path included stints at Second City and Saturday Night Live before his memorable roles in the "Anchorman" movies and "The Office" television series. Koechner explains why he chose comedy and acting and how he knows his Big Slick cohosts Paul Rudd, Rob Riggle and Jason Sudeikis.

The "Big Slick Virtually Talented Show" streams live on Saturday, June 12 at 7:30 p.m. on the Big Slick YouTube and Facebook channels.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., 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. My email is steve@kcur.org.
As Up To Date’s associate producer, I construct daily conversations that give our listeners context to the issues of our time. I strive to provide a platform that holds those in power accountable, while also spotlighting the voices of Kansas City’s creatives and visionaries that may otherwise go unheard. Email me at zach@kcur.org.
As senior producer of Up To Date, I want our listeners to hear familiar and new voices that shine light on the issues and challenges facing the myriad communities KCUR serves, and to expose our audiences to the wonderful and the creative in the Kansas City area. Just as important to me is an obligation to mentor the next generation of producers to ensure that the important conversations continue. Reach me at alexanderdk@kcur.org.
