NED REYNOLDS BIO
Sports Director/Anchor/Announcer KY3
Host Sports Reporters Jock 98.7 FM
People in the Ozarks have been watching Ned Reynolds on KY3 for over 40 years. They have heard the phrases "get that off the screen” when one of the local favorites is being beaten and "bon jour and goodsports
” at the end of the morning newscasts. Anyone who has met Ned will say sports is in his blood.
While many people in the Ozarks consider Ned a Missouri native, he grew up in Haddonfield, N.J. Ned is the middle child of three boys. His older brother is a retired professor at Rutgers University and his younger brother is retired from the U.S. Steel Corporation and heads the fundraising efforts for Theo's Work, an orphanage for underprivileged children in Haiti.
His father was a high school principal and provided educational direction. His mother, a concert pianist, developed his love of classical music. After graduating from high school in Haddonfield Memorial High, Ned attended Temple University in Philadelphia. With the strong suggestion from his father, Ned studied English rather than journalism. His father felt that a basic overall education would be more beneficial to career enhancement than journalism.
