I’m Kent Chapline, a digital journalist in Kansas City.  I manage the team that runs kshb.com, the news site for the Scripps-owned NBC TV station here.

Prior to this I taught journalism at Texas Christian University and advised TCU 360, the school’s award-winning student media operation.  While at TCU, my partner and I won a Knight Foundation Prototype Grant for our Photostreamer project.

I’m also involved in the industry: I co-founded ONA Dallas/Fort Worth and I help run #wjchat, a weekly Twitter chat for digital journalists. I’ve also done some freelance journalism work.

Before I started teaching I managed cbsdfw.com.  Prior to that I produced local TV news in Dallas-Fort Worth, Oklahoma City, and El Paso.
