No Business Like Snow Business


Forget the responsibilities a snow day brings for a moment and embrace your inner child. 

On Tuesday's Up to Date, we want your suggestions for the best sledding hill in KC. Plus, we all grumble about shoveling snow, so what’s the best way to do it? We talk with an expert to get you some tips and recommend the best kind of shovel.

And if you do get stuck in the snow, we've got the rules tow truck companies must follow and an update on how Kansas City’s public transportation is doing this morning.

  • Cynthia Baker, director of marketing for the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority

Up To Date snowkcata
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.
