Greg Hurd

River City Weekly host

Moving to Lawrence from Los Angeles in 1999, I started at what is now Sunflower Broadband in May of that year as host and producer of As Time Goes By. I now host and produce, River City Weekly while holding down the post of Multi-media Assistant Managing Editor of the Lawrence Journal-World, World Online and 6News.

My roles allow me the joy and privilege of meeting a great many fascinating and creative people in all walks of life either living in or visiting Lawrence.

Born and raised in the Kansas City area, I attended K.U. in the 1970s. During that time, I founded and owned a small business and wrote books for various governmental studies. After a stint as a producer at KMBC-TV9 in Kansas City, I moved to Los Angeles where I worked as a freelance producer and writer. I also became very involved in church in Los Angeles and soon found my way into seminary. I worked at two churches in the Los Angeles area before a visit to Kansas City put in motion my move back to Lawrence.

On that trip, I became reacquainted with a college friend, who soon became the focus of my return to Kansas. I moved to Lawrence in 1999 to marry that friend and become the stepfather to her three great kids. I have a small production company which keeps some of the family members busy with video work for corporations and non-profits from time-to-time. I also keep at my playwriting and screenwriting.

Away from the office, I enjoy time with my family, drawing, reading, travel and K.U. sports.
