Tom McKee has been with 9 News for 23 years, giving him a unique perspective on what's important to every area of the Tri-State.
Originally from Maumee, Ohio, McKee came to WCPO as an intern from Ohio University in 1973 and landed a full-time position upon graduation. He covered the Hamilton County Courthouse and Cincinnati City Hall until becoming a producer for legendary WCPO News Director Al Schottelkotte.
In October 1980, McKee and eight other WCPO employees were held hostage at the television station by a gunman who released everyone unharmed and later took his own life.
McKee joined production company Video Features, Inc. in 1984, rising to the position of Vice President of operations.
After spending most of 1989 as a free-lance producer/director/writer he rejoined WCPO as assignment manager, serving in that position until being asked in 2001 to put his experience to use again as a reporter.
McKee lives in Kenwood with his wife, Claudia. Their three grown sons live in the Cincinnati area.
