Tucker named AP Staffer of the Year

KANSAS CITY (AP) — Doug Tucker, the longtime Associated Press sports writer based in Kansas City, was named the news cooperative’s Fred Moen Kansas-Missouri Staffer of the Year on Dec. 8.
Tucker, 62, joined the AP as a newsman in Oklahoma City in 1969. He has covered news and sports in the Kansas City area since the early 1970s, eventually settling in as AP’s lead sports writer covering the array of college and professional teams making news in the region.
Tucker has been a fixture at press boxes from Kansas State and Kansas to Kauffman and Arrowhead stadiums in Kansas City. His byline has topped most of the area’s biggest sports stories of the past year, including Kansas’ run to the NCAA basketball championship.
The award was established by The Kansas City Star in honor of the late Fred Moen, AP’s Kansas City bureau chief from 1971-1984.
