KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - David Skretta, a Kansas City-based reporter for The Associated Press, was named the AP’s Fred Moen Kansas-Missouri 2014 Staffer of the Year.

Skretta was cited Monday by AP for his sports coverage, including the Royals first World Series appearance in 29 years. The honor is named for the late Fred Moen, who was AP’s Kansas City bureau chief from 1971-1984.

Before joining AP in 2005, Skretta did internships at The Topeka Capital-Journal and USA Today. He spent a year doing general assignment work before a promotion to the national sports desk in New York, where he covered the Mets and Yankees along with boxing and college basketball.

He returned to Kansas City in 2011 and now covers the Chiefs, Royals, Sporting KC, Kansas, Kansas State, NASCAR and cycling.
