Name
: Joel Nichols

Occupation: Co-host of Kansas City Live

Hometown: Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin

Current neighborhood: Stilwell, Kansas

What I do (in 140 characters): Have a great time with great people at KSHB Channel 41 working on Kansas City Live. Goofing around with the best co-host anywhere, Michelle Davidson.

What’s your addiction? M&M’s and The Andy Griffith Show

What’s your game? Once upon a time, it was badly played golf. Now, we play a card game from my Wisconsin childhood called Euchre. You do need cheese curds nearby.

What’s your drink? Water. Or, when I’m feeling wild, chocolate milk!

Where’s dinner?
Mostly at home with the family watching Strangers With Candy on DVD.

What’s on your KC postcard? What I see when I look out the window at any given moment!

“Kansas City needs …” To watch or DVR Kansas City Live every day on KSHB at 10 a.m. How’s that for shameless self-promotion and self-preservation!

“In five years, I’ll be …” Closer to looking the age everybody thinks I am already.

“I always laugh at …” Things my kids say. They’re the funniest people I know.

“I’ve been known to binge-watch …” Curb Your Enthusiasm on DVD.

“I can’t stop listening to …” Sinatra. It always comes back to Sinatra.

“I just read …” The Bully Pulpit by Doris Kearns Goodwin. So much of it sounds like today’s political world.

The best advice I ever got: From Rabbi Harold Kushner: When you feel others have wronged you, assume ignorance, not malice.

Worst advice: “Nah, go ahead and step in it.”

My sidekick: My perfect wife, Jessica.

My dating triumph/tragedy: See above answer … one ongoing dating triumph for me, but it may be a tragedy for her!

My brush with fame: As a front-desk clerk in college, I once checked Art Linkletter in to his room. I said the darndest thing. (Google Art Linkletter, and the joke will be somewhat funnier.)

My 140-character soapbox: Only 140 characters! That’s an outrage. I have so many important things to say! How dare you limit me to 140 characters! Well, OK, here goes …

What was the last thing you had to apologize for? I’ve been married forever and have four kids … most of the time, I am apologizing or should be!

Who’s sorry now? Connie Francis.

My recent triumph: Standing up on roller skates during Kansas City Live. My experience with skates and live television is problematic.

Kansas City Live airs weekdays at 10 a.m. on KSHB Channel 41.
