Bringing a sense of normalcy to the unpredictable morning show, Nate has been part of the Sports Radio 810 WHBteam since 2003. A proud native of Wyandotte County, in Kansas City, Kansas, Nate is one of the most well-read and well-prepared radio hosts in the market and adds keen insight and interesting perspective when discussing the day's headlines, whether it’s sports, news or entertainment-related.
Nate is as versatile as he is thorough, as he also serves as the television and radio play-by-play voice of Sporting Kansas City. Before taking on his duties at Sporting, Nate spent 14 years as the pre-game host and sideline reporter for Kansas University Football in the fall, and the play-by-play voice of Kansas women’s basketball. Bukaty also spent five years as the clubhouse reporter for FOX Sports Kansas City’s Royals pre-game and post-game.
After graduating from Bishop Ward High School in 1994, Nate honed his professional talents at the University of Kansas where he graduated with a Broadcast Journalism degree. From Lawrence, Nate crossed the state line where he accepted his first full-time radio job in Moberly, Missouri. That’s where Nate’s versatility really paid off, as a country music DJ, a news anchor, and a farm show reporter.
Nate’s meteoric rise in the business led him to move back to the Kansas City market a year later where he held various positions at 1250 The Game and News Radio 980 KMBZ before coming to WHB in 2003.
When he’s not working on the air (which is rare), Nate spends time with his wonderful family (wife, Kelly; son, Ben; and daughter, Ophelia), listens to his favorite music (The Beastie Boys, A Tribe Called Quest, and Vampire Weekend rank up there) or watches one of several favorite movies (Grosse Point Blank and Pulp Fiction top that list).
