Kent Winder anchors KNOP News 2 at 6 p.m.

For as long as he can remember, Kent Winder wanted to be a reporter and anchor. He would practice by reading out loud whatever he could get his hands on as he was growing up.

Kent graduated from Hershey High School and went on to get a bachelors degree in Broadcast Communications from the University of Nebraska–Kearney.

Kent began working at KNOP-TV as a studio camera operator in 1993 and worked his way up to an anchor and assignment editor.

"The people of West Central Nebraska have some wonderful stories to tell and I am glad to share those stories with the people of Greater Nebraska," Kent said.

He enjoys spending time with his daughter, Sienna, and living in a wonderful area like West Central Nebraska.
