Troy Diggs is a morning news producer for FOX 4 News.
Troy wanted to work in television at the age of 4, when he would sit at a drawing table with a clip-on tie and jacket and pretend to be a television anchor. Eventually, he went to Arkansas State University, and became an overnight producer at his hometown television station in northeast Arkansas, Jonesboro’s KAIT.
In 2001, Troy moved to Wichita, Kan. – despite never having been there before the job interview. He spent three years as a producer for “Good Morning Kansas” at KAKE-TV, was nominated twice for Emmy awards, and never got used to calling it the “Ar-Kansas River”.
Troy spent about seven years working at another Kansas City television station before moving to Fox 4 in 2011. Troy hit the highway to Fox 4’s Seattle sister station, KCPQ, in December of 2013 to take up a new adventure. Depite Seattle’s great seafood and scenery, he couldn’t resist the opportunity to come back to Kansas City, and moved back in the summer of 2015.
In his spare time, Troy volunteers at Kansas City’s Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, so don’t be surprised if he shows you to your seat sometime. He’s also an aspiring photographer (you can see his work at amnewsboy.com), regularly runs 5k races throughout the Metro, and regularly appears in the front row of the Cauldron for Sporting Kansas City matches.
Troy also produces and co-hosts “PriceCast”, a fan podcast on “The Price Is Right”. (It’s available on the iTunes store or wherever you download podcasts.) You can also catch him at various venues around town hosting pub quiz events. With what little spare time he has left over after all that, he enjoys sleep.
