Roshann Parris: A Local Mover And Shaker


After 25 years heading her own public relations firm, Roshann Parris knows her way around the business world.

On Wednesday's Up to Date, we talk about her new role as chair of the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce, how it feels to be the 4th woman to hold this post and what changes she wants to make there.

Also, we celebrate her company's, Parris Communications Inc., 25th birthday. 

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.
