KYTV is about the only news outlet to mention this, but radio/TV announcer Joe Slattery has died. He was 87. He is best known as the announcer for the Ozark Jubilee/Jubilee U.S.A. Rumor has it some in the Springfield market resented Slattery's involvement with the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA). Slattery worked locally at KWTO and KYTV before being hired away by ABC. Here is KYTV story.
