In 2006, Curtis Kitchen started his full-time sports media career in earnest with Union Broadcasting (810 WHB/1510 KCTE). Over the next five years, Kitchen built a modest but strong following through his Kansas State reporting and opinion columns.
Thanks to Twitter’s arrival in 2009, Kitchen was one of the first KC-area media personalities to actively engage the new platform – understanding how cool it was to be able to report in-game things and engage with fans on a public stage; let alone not having to wait for a scheduled game break or show two or three days later.
After leaving Union in 2010, Kitchen began CurtisKitchen.com – a place for K-State, Big 12 and Kansas City pro sports fans to hang. That project went dormant after a few years in 2013, and it remained that way until now with the unveiling of Kitchen’s Ink.
