Keegan Cooper joined the TV6 team as a Sports Anchor/Reporter in June 2022. His goal as a Sports Anchor/Reporter is to tell stories the best way he can. As a former athlete himself, Keegan understands the struggles athletes go through at the high school and collegiate levels. Keegan’s goal is to find those powerful stories and share them with a community that loves sports as much as he does.
Keegan graduated from Northwest Missouri State University with a degree in Mass Media Broadcasting in May 2021 . Keegan’s interest in sports reporting started in high school after taking part in the new media class that was being offered.
From then on in college, Keegan gained experience in the sports reporting world by working for his college TV station KNWT Channel 8, college radio station KZLX NPR station KXCV/KRNW and local ABC Affiliate KQ2 - St. Joseph. Keegan also has worked as a Digital Producer/Editor in Omaha, Nebraska.
Keegan has covered events including Division II Athletic Broadcasts, the MIAA tournament in Kansas City, MO, local news and events surrounding Maryville, Mo, high school athletic events for KQ2- St. Joseph, the Iowa Caucus, and colleges such as the University of Nebraska, University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Creighton University.
In his free time, Keegan enjoys the outdoors, attending sporting events, finding the best local restaurants, and sampling from local breweries. He also is a movie enthusiast and loves to play guitar.
