Bill Grady just celebrated his 40th year in broadcasting, and still has a passion for the business. The native Southerner has called the metro area home since 1983. Among the stories he's covered are the inaugural flight of the Concorde from D-FW Airport to London, the search for a " swamp creature" in Louisiana's Atchafalaya Basin, the exhumation of Presidential assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, the murder of Dr. George Tiller, and Hurricane Katrina just to name a few.
Among his awards, Grady was the recipient of the "Edward R. Murrow" award for his 2007 coverage of the shootings at Ward Parkway Shopping Center. He's the past president of the Kansas City Press Club, and an honorary deputy with the Dallas County (Texas) Sheriff's Department . When not "chasing stories," Bill enjoys old movies, reading and fishing. He thinks Frank Sinatra was one of our greatest entertainers, Sean Connery was the best James Bond, and that Sofia Vergara should call him, soon.
