Tom McKee Veteran broadcast journalist Tom McKee worked for WCPO-TV for 40 years before retiring at the end of 2018. In his career, McKee was a reporter, producer, assignment manager and multimedia journalist covering stories in Greater Cincinnati and around the country. The biggest challenge came in 1980, when he and eight co-workers were taken hostage at the station by a man who later took his own life. All nine were released unharmed. Honors for McKee include a 2013 Walter Cronkite Award for Civic Engagement in election coverage, the L.J. Hortin Distinguished Alumni Award from the Scripps School of Journalism at his alma mater, Ohio University, and induction into the Hall of Fame of the Ohio Associated Press Managing Editors. McKee and his wife, Claudia, have three grown sons and seven grandchildren.
