Tremors Watch Along - Online

This month, Manager of Public Engagement Robert Rutherford is joined by guest Kelly Sue DeConnick, writer of some of the most exciting titles in modern comics, including the Carol Danvers rebranding as Captain Marvel, the Eisner-nominated Pretty Deadly, and Bitch Planet. Kelly Sue chose this month’s selection, Tremors, a loving nod to the creature features that dominated cinema projectors in the 1950s and a fantastic touchstone in Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon games.

OUR HEARTS LIVE HERE Initiative - 2020 Graduation

At KCTS 9, we believe that our COMMUNITY is our greatest strength in times of adversity.  The novel coronavirus has significantly changed the ways we interact with our family, friends and neighbors. In an effort to spread some joy during the difficult moment we’re all living in, we’re launching the OUR HEARTS LIVE HERE initiative.

Graduation season is upon us, and we want to celebrate and honor all of the grads from pre-school to law-school and everything in between, who are missing out on this year’s ceremonies.

Submit a photo of your graduate (or yourself!) below for us to feature on-air on KCTS 9 and on our social media channels. You can also use #OurHeartsLiveHere to submit photos and share your grads with your neighbors.

Congrats to the class of 2020!

Want to see photos from our decorating or Mr. Rogers sweater challenges? Click here.

Finally, please share this with your family, friends and neighbors! The more people who participate the more we show we’re all in this together.

Here’s how to participate:

1) To submit your photo(s), fill out this form and include your name, e-mail and photo of your graduate(s). Use the hashtag #OurHeartsLiveHere to share your work with the community.

2) Follow all social distancing guidelines and stay at least 6 feet away from anyone who doesn’t live in your residence.

Our favorite submissions will be featured in spots aired on KCTS 9.
