Mark Alford 2018
As Fox 4 Kansas City viewers we have noticed a troubling pattern of behavior from News Anchor Mark Alford. On numerous occasions over the course of past month beginning on August, 20th reports began circulating online of troubling comments made by Mr. Alford, both on Fox 4 Kansas City’s station, and on Mr. Alford’s personal Instagram (which is also used to promote his work on Fox 4 Kansas City).
These troubling comments included Mr. Alford mocking environmentalists in regards to a community banning balloons, stating sarcastically that “environmentalists ruin all the fun”. These comments were not only unprofessional on Mr. Alford’s behalf but they were seemingly targeted at a large portion of Fox 4’s audience, as Kansas City runs one of the most successful curbside recycling programs in the country.
Rather than apologizing for his comments, Mr. Alford seemingly became antagonistic when faced with rightful criticism on social media. As Fox 4 viewers we understand what an important element of viewer interaction Fox 4 considers social media, thus making Mr. Alford’s behavior further troubling, as he continued to show little regard for his employer’s audience.

“It’s zapping my biscuits,” Nick said after the first zap.
Mark couldn’t help but erupt in laughter. See the hilarious moment in the video player above.

Mr. Alford’s most recent attack on those animals concerned with the humane treatment of animals occurred on the week of September 1’st. In the instance, Mr. Alford was handing out pieces of “beef” to other members of the Fox 4 staff when he began mimicking the sounds a cow and stated that “this animal has been dead for a while” when another anchor expressed displeasure in his behavior.
