Hearne: KMBC’s Larry Moore to Hang It Up Day Before Thanksgiving

Screen shot 2013-10-31 at 8.17.07 AMChannel 9 anchor Larry Moore taps out…on Facebook!

You got it, when the 68 year-old television news anchor decided to call it quits, he laid it all down on social media, specifically his Facebook page for – not just KMBC 6 p.m news viewers to see – but his 131 “Likes.”

That’s right, only 131. I’m No. 132.

And just like that, the guy with thoaw giant 1970s sideburns that local Baby Boomers grew up with for the better part of 40 years, announced that he will bite the television dust on November 27th, the day before Thanksgiving.

Adios, Big Guy.

    Larry is as cool as they come. I’ve seen him speak several times at different galas and functions.

    He projects very well.

    Twinkies anyone?

    I did some work at Larry’s house many years ago, hell of a nice man. Very, very easy to like this guy. I wish him a great retirement.

      Probably one of the last guys in town who remembers what the news business was when the business was news.

    KC’s own Ron Burgundy

  6. CG says:

    Known Larry for years always nice to me and my family on air and off, very nice man. Great career, he is and was ‘the tv news man’ of this city. All the best Larry.

  7. Hot Carl says:

    Any way we can convince him to take Karen Kornacki when he goes?

    • Stomper says:

      Now that’s funny !!

    • Gerald Bostock says:

      Sorry. Karen Kornacki’s relatives and neighbors, as well as Larry Moore’s grandson, have made it clear to Karen that they do not have any desire to spend more time with her.

  8. Radio dude says:

    Good to see so many positive comments about a KC icon who is simply ” one of the best ever in KC” loved Larry…but it was his time and nobody from Corporate to make that decision.
