Edward Key

Executive Producer

Edward Key III is a native of Jackson, Mississippi. He graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi with a Bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Communication Studies.

Edward began his career in broadcasting as an on-air play-by-play announcer with SuperTalk Mississippi radio, covering high school sports. He transitioned into news working as an Associate Producer for the NBC affiliate in his hometown. Moving to Colorado Springs in August of 2021, Edward worked as a News Producer for the local CBS affiliate. While there, he also earned a Master's degree in Political Science and interned with the Colorado State Senate. Edward says he is excited to begin his role as an Executive Producer here at KOAA.

Edward loves covering stories that will impact our future communities and minority families who feel voiceless. One of his favorite moments as a journalist was when he was able to interview Miss Mississippi in 2016. The conversation was centered around young girls being able to discover their inner beauty, which could be the driving force to build the confidence needed to overcome any obstacles they may face.

One of the most memorable stories he’s covered was the Marshall Fire in 2021. This was the first time he realized one of the common dangers people who live in the Rocky Mountain region face. He will always remember the severity of this event and how surreal it felt for people who had to evacuate their homes immediately.

Edward loves reading and his favorite book is the Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield. Edward says he is a strong believer that everyone on earth has a purpose and that we are all gifted at something. Sometimes our purpose may be to uplift and inspire someone to find theirs. He loves meeting new people and getting to know what gets them going. He also looks forward to becoming an author pretty soon.

While a southerner at heart, Edward enjoys his daily glimpse of the mountains and watching sports.

Remember to always be willing to learn more and you can master anything, "Today it's the classroom, tomorrow it's the world."
