As the broadcast news industry evolves, there is one constant: the value of storytelling. In today’s digital age, we must tell character-driven stories that resonate. These are the stories viewers want to click, watch, and share. These are the stories Kyle Deckelbaum prides himself in being able to tell.
Kyle has won an Emmy and three Edward R. Murrow awards for his storytelling and writing. His prominent “Beyond the Game” segment has received national recognition, as have his carefully crafted stories that show the human spirit during trying times.
The Wisconsin Broadcasters Association, Milwaukee Press Club, Midwest Broadcast Journalists Association and Arkansas Associated Press Broadcasters Association are among the other organizations that have honored his work. He was also named one of the top 20 play-by-play broadcasters in the country by the Sportscasters Talent Agency of America.
A native of Washington, D.C., Kyle is known for sophisticated storytelling and breaking local stories at KATV, the legacy affiliate in Little Rock. He began his career at WKBT in La Crosse/Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Kyle graduated from the University of Wisconsin, where he did play-by-play broadcasts for the Big Ten Network. He interned for the Washington Nationals, Mid-Atlantic Sports Network, and WJLA.
