Kirk has spent many of the last 25 years as a journalist and talk show host with stops at stations in suburban Chicago, west central Illinois and now, Springfield.
A native Chicagoan, Farah has called Springfield home since 2001. Kirk currently is our street reporter whose beats include crime, courts, suburban Springfield communities and the Springfield school district. You can catch what he’s working on during the day weekdays during the Reporter’s Notebook on the Ray Lytle Show, which airs after the 4:30 news.
A former military officer, he has spent time in several different corners of the world to include state-side assignments, Korea and, Hawaii. Farah is an avid Cubs and Bears fan. He has three grown sons.
Some call him curmudgeonly, we like to think he is just slightly annoyed.
