In its annual Best of 417 Awards, 417 Magazine readers named former KODE anchor Lisa Rose (formerly Richardson) Best Local Female TV News Personality:
Springfield-based TV news went through a number of changes during the past year, as KYTV essentially acquired KSPR, sending some key talent and newsroom managers to the rebranded station. Through it all, Lisa Rose was (and is) a KY3 constant, reporting and anchoring the news weeknights at 6 and 10 p.m. Why do people like her so? “She’s so warm and personable,” sums up one of our editors. “It’s like listening to your young, cool aunt give the news.” Rose also reports on medical news for the station.
