Chiefs: Dysfunctional On The Field...And At The Office?

KCChiefstraining.jpg
Kansas City Chiefs Training Facility and Administrative Offices

According to a Kansas City Star article by sportswriter Kent Babb, "secrecy, intimidation, fear and a watchful eye have become hallmarks of working for the Chiefs."

On the first half of Wednesday's Up to Date, Steve Kraske talked with Babb about the allegations being made by current and former employees, including tapping of phones and bugged offices, and a workplace where secrecy and intimidation are normal activities.

After growing up on the east coast and spending his first professional years in classical music, Stephen moved to Kansas City in 1995 expecting to leave after a few years. (Clearly that didn't happen.) More than two decades and three kids later, he doesn't regret his decision to stick around. Stephen began his career in public radio as a classical music host. As the founding producer of Up to Date with Steve Kraske, he received a number of local and national awards for his work on the program. Since 2014 he's overseen KCUR's broadcast operations. When Stephen isn't at KCUR's studios, he's probably adding more stamps to his passport with his KU professor wife and their three kids. His son almost made him cry during a drive through the Rockies when he said at age 8: "Dad, can we listen to public radio?" Sniff sniff.
