Will DuPree joined KAIT as a video journalist in October 2011. Will grew up in Newport, so he is excited to report on issues affecting his neighbors across Region 8.
Will spent the past year as a reporter and producer at 6News Lawrence, a cable station in Lawrence, Kansas. Before making his way to Lawrence, Will attended Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism in Evanston, Illinois. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in journalism in 2010. He proudly sports purple and white for his alma mater, but definitely does not miss the frigid winters in Chicago.
During his time at Northwestern, Will enjoyed several internships. He served as the first intern for the CBS News bureau in Chicago during 2008. He also worked as a news intern for KATV in Little Rock. Will split much of his time at school between the Northwestern News Network and the undergraduate admission office, where he gave tours and other presentations to prospective students.
When not telling stories from communities around Region 8, Will likes to check out the latest movies and catch up on his favorite television shows. He also enjoys picking up a good book and trying out new recipes in the kitchen.
Feel free to email Will to say hello or share a story idea. He can't wait to learn even more about Region 8!
