6 Things You Didn't Know About News On 6 Sports Anchor Harold Kuntz
TULSA, Oklahoma - We hope you'll take this opportunity to get to know another member of the News On 6 team. We started this feature on NewsOn6.com as a way to show you a side of our team members you usually don't get to see as they bring you the news every day.
Next up is sports anchor Harold Kuntz. You can find Harold anchoring sportscasts or reporting in the field all over Green Country.
1. What was your first job in television news?
I worked at a small station in Hagerstown, MD, WHAG. I started as a sports reporter and worked up to sports director. We covered four states (MD, WV, PA, VA). Needless to say, it was a chore during high school football season and college football season and, oh yeah, the NFL season. But it was fun. A former co-worker at WHAG (who now works at KOTV) introduced me to the wonderful world of Green Country.
2. You have 15 minutes of free time, what do you do?
It can be anything at any period of free time. You can find me looking for my errant tee shots at a golf course, or catching up on my favorite teams on TV/Internet (Eagles, Phillies, Predators, Arsenal FC, and I've adopted the Thunder as my favorite NBA team). And grocery shopping.
3. What's in the console of your car?
Lot of CDs, all varieties of music, but mostly 90s Hip Hop/R&B. In addition, a phone charger and a sack of coins for when I have to go through the toll booths.
4. What's your hidden talent?
Played string bass in my college (Loyola U. New Orleans) band for all four years. I haven't played since I've been in Tulsa, so I'd have to catch up on my major and minor scales. I'm sure it would be just like riding a bicycle again, though.
5. What was your high school mascot?
The Montgomery Bell Big Red (Nashville, TN). And no, our mascot was not Clifford the Big Red Dog. At points I played three sports in high school, all unsuccessfully except high jump in track.
6. How would you describe Tulsa to someone who's never been here?
If you give it some time, it's a great place. It may not jump out at first as the greatest place ever, but it is a growing city. Like any city, it has its problems and a history that is unceremonious in certain periods. But, the people are great, the future is bright and there are good people here that are trying to make this city better. It's a city that loves its arts and entertainment and, I think, starting to show that a little more into the fabric of the community with more events like the Center of the Universe Festival and concerts at Cain's Ballroom and BOK Center. For me in sports, it's a city that loves its college teams. ORU, TU, OU and OSU get great support and you can feel the state pride at every game.
