Title: Sports Director

Kaleb Gillock joined KIMT in the September of 2018 as a sports and news reporter.

A native of New Castle, Indiana, Kaleb graduated from Indiana University East in 2018 with a degree in Communication Studies.

Kaleb first found his passion for broadcasting during his sophomore year of high school as a sports public address announcer. While his announcing career started at the youth level, it quickly grew to announcing games at three different Indiana high schools, an NCAA Division III college, and the local racetrack.

During his senior year of high school, he enrolled in the radio and television broadcasting program where he served as a radio on-air personality and Sports Director at WKPW-FM. His hard work and dedication to the program earned him two top-three awards at the 2014 Indiana Association of School Broadcasters (IASB) state contest.

Prior to graduation, Kaleb was offered a full-ride scholarship from the Indiana University East (IUE) Athletic Department. During his time at IUE, he served as the university’s only play-by-play broadcaster, calling over 270 volleyball, basketball, and soccer games, as well as hosting over 100 episodes of the weekly “Inside IU East Sports” television talk show. All of his experience deemed him “voice” of the River States and Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic conferences, capturing two more IASB awards and a CoSIDA “Call of the Year” award in 2018.

Furthermore, he completed a Sports Department internship with WISH-TV in Indianapolis, as well as a Sports Marketing/Communications and Administration internship with Earlham College.

When not at work, Gillock loves being involved in the community through volunteer work and his church.

While Gillock is no stranger to the Midwest, he looks forward to telling some of the best news and sports stories for the people of North Iowa and Southern Minnesota.
