John Yates, longtime Channel 5 weatherman, dies at 86

The solid, unshowy weatherman joined the station then known as KCMO-TV (now KCTV) in 1958 and stayed on the air there until 1981. Yates “was a consummate professional,” remembered Jack Harry, KSHB’s sports director, who at one time worked with Yates at Channel 5.
