KC Kingdom Says Good-Bye To Ben Nieslen And Welcomes 2 New Editors



KC Kingdom’s fine co-editor Ben Nielsen has worked very hard to build this site into a strong source for Kansas City area sports. His hard work and dedication as been much appreciated. On a personal note, I have enjoyed working with him this past year very much. We worked very well together, and on a purely selfish level, and I am sad to see him go.

Ben will be missed at KC Kingdom but he is not going very far away. He is moving to Arrowhead Addict, where he will serve in a similar capacity, along side Jason Seibel. These two fine writers should be very successful on that terrific site. I want to thank Ben for all his hard work on KC Kingdom, and wish him all the luck in the world in his new endeavor.

I am thrilled to announce that KC Kingdom has promoted two of our own staff writers to join me as co-editors on KC Kingdom. Both have earned this opportunity by being loyal, productive writers who have been willing go the extra mile when asked.

Anyone who visits KC Kingdom on a regular basis knows what a fine writer and researcher Aaron Reese is. I often read an article he wrote on the Kansas City Royals, and I find myself wishing I had written it. I am excited to see even more of his work on a broader scale.

Josh Michaels joined us about the same time as Aaron, last spring, and has been an enthusiastic staff member ever since. His “Getting to Know the Enemy” series during the NFL season was very popular with our readers. He is also a Missouri Tiger fan, but we didn’t hold that against him. Hopefully, we can bring you even more Tiger content with Josh more involved with the site.

Both of these gentlemen are passionate about their teams, and will bring that passion to the forefront. I am very proud to have the opportunity to work even closer with them in the future.

Ben Nielsen will surely be missed but I am confident we can continue our coverage of  Kansas City sports with the same love, dedication, and diversity in which we have in the past.
