Kansas gubernatorial candidates took to the stage on Saturday night, as Secretary of State Kris Kobach, Insurance Commissioner Ken Selzer, Mark Hutton, and Wink Hartman used the opportunity to make their case to the people of Kansas.
The event was hosted by KGPT 26’s Bob Weeks, and KQAM 1480’s Andy Hooser. KGPT 26’s broadcast began at 6 p.m. with coverage and interviews, and concluded at 10 p.m. Kris Kobach, Mark Hutton, Representative John Whitmer, Todd Tiarht, Danedri Herbert, and 2nd district congressional candidate Tyler Tannahill were among the guests who appeared on KGPT 26’s broadcast.
KGPT 26 was selected as the broadcast destination for the debate by the Kansas Republican Party, and working with Douglas Production Group, we were able to give our viewers an exciting and engaging broadcast.
The debate was carried throughout the state, both on TV and radio. On television, KGPT 26 broadcast the debate in Wichita and Hutchinson, KDGL TV 23 in Western Kansas, TV 25 Topeka and Kansas City. On radio, Steckline Communications broadcast the debate in Wichita, Kansas on KQAM 1480 as well as in their Garden City radio station KIUL.
KGPT 26 TV General Manager John Pappert was excited to bring the debate to his viewers.
“It’s something no one else is doing,” Pappert said, “And people want to see it.”
The debate was also streamed on Facebook, and is now available on Facebook and YouTube.
