Attorney and former chair of the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission Steve Miller is just one of the candidates running for mayor of Kansas City, Missouri.

Segment 1: Lawyer and lifelong Kansas Citian realized his past role as chairman of Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission "functions much like the mayor of a city." 

In the first of our series of interviews with Kansas City, Missouri, hopefuls to become mayor, Steve Miller laid out his views on crime, affordable housing, pre-K education and more.

Segment 2, beginning at 22:06: Analysis of how area teams will do in the New Year.

A panel of veteran sports reporters looked at Kansas City's professional teams and assessed their chances for 2019. They didn't ignore college hoops either, as men's and women's basketball schedules are in full swing at KU, Mizzou and K-State.

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 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.
The Kansas City region has long been a place where different ways of life collide. I tell the stories of people living and working where race, culture and ethnicity intersect. I examine racial equity and disparity, highlight the area's ethnic groups and communities of color, and invite all of Kansas City to explore meaningful ways to bond with and embrace cultures different from their own.
