KMOS-TV in Warrensburg Wins Emmy Award for Episode of ‘Missouri Life’

The University of Central Missouri’s public television station, KMOS-TV, recently won a Mid-American Chapter Regional Emmy Award for an episode of ‘Missouri Life.

According to a press release from UCM, the Emmy award is the first for the station. KMOS received the award during the ‘National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ ceremony in St. Louis on September 9.


The press release states, The KMOS-TV production team was recognized for excellence in the Magazine Program category for the profile of Silver Dollar City on the locally produced program “Missouri Life.” In producing the segment on Silver Dollar City, the crew interviewed Herschend Family Entertainment founders Pete and Jack Herschend, explored Marvel Cave, and took a thrilling ride on a roller coaster.

The current KMOS production team is Thomas Phillips, Roy Millen, Christy Millen, and Eric Boedeker. The on-screen host is Meredith Hoenes, who has previously worked with KMIZ-TV in Columbia and KSHB-TV and WDAF-TV in Kansas City.

“‘Missouri Life’ is a labor of love for all involved,” said Josh Tomlinson, UCM interim director of Broadcasting Services. “It is only possible through our partnership with ‘Missouri Life’ magazine and the wonderful places and communities we feature, not to mention our dedicated production staff.”

The third season of “Missouri Life” premieres October 5. The season will focus on visits to Cape Girardeau, Callaway County, Chariton County, Moberly, Newton County, and Pulaski County.

“Missouri Life” is the first local production for KMOS-TV that airs on all PBS stations across the state. The show can be watched online at
