Kirk is a life-long midwesterner who is very excited to bring his family to West Michigan and help get your day started as co-anchor of the WWMT morning show alongside Marcie and Jeff.
Kirk has more than seventeen years of experience working in television news. Most recently he was the morning and noon show anchor for WSBT-TV in South Bend, Indiana. The market includes part of Southwest Michigan. During his time in South Bend, the Associated Press named Kirk Indiana's best reporter. He was also honored for an investigative report that raised concerns about the safety of a local community's drinking water.
His experience as a reporter includes a trip to Vietnam with Indiana's former governor Joe Kernan to search for the village where his plane was shot down during the war. The future governor was captured and held for months as a prisoner of war. This was Kernan's first trip back to Vietnam.
Kirk also travelled to the White House when the University of Notre Dame women's basketball team was honored for winning a national championship, and visited Fort Hood, Texas to see how local military reservists were protecting the military base after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
Prior to South Bend, Kirk worked at KSPR-TV in Springfield, Missouri, and WFJW-TV in Rhinelander, Wisconsin.
Kirk's wife Carolyn grew up in Southwest Michigan and graduated from Michigan State. They have two sons, 3 year old Luke, and one year old Graham.
