    About Fred Hunt

    For 25 years Fred supervised daily operations in the KMOS-TV Master Control before his death in 2008. He was well regarded by the hundreds of students who worked in Operations and On-Air Promotions in that time. Fred worked with engineers to change the configuration of Master Control, and was devoted to giving KMOS viewers and members the dependable television experience they deserved.

    This is a relatively new scholarship which has yet to be fully endowed. Thanks to a lead gift from 1984 graduate Dan Stark, we have started a scholarship in his honor with the UCM Foundation and we welcome additional support to create a permanent legacy. If you remember Fred Hunt, or would like to support student success at KMOS and UCM, please contact us at 800-753-3436, or KMOS-TV, University of Central Missouri, Warrensburg, MO 64093.

    About John E. Bradley

    After a long career in military broadcasting with the Armed Forces Radio and Television Service, Bradley was tapped by the university to act as general manager for the newly acquired KMOS-TV in 1978. Beginning in 1985, when the university's radio station (KCMW-FM) was relocated to the Martin Building, he became responsible for what became the Office of Broadcasting Services. Bradley retired in 1986, whereupon this scholarship fund was established by the Community Advisory Board.
