The History of KC Anthem


KC Anthem, An Internet TV Odyssey

KC Anthem began as an 'Online TV Show' in 2007, broadcast first on the KC Anthem TV Youtube and eventually live via KCanthem.com.  Two years later KC Anthem TV became the channel which hosted KC Anthem and 'Mister Smiley's Hell Tonight', a freestyle Internet broadcast by KC Anthem creator Jordan 'Smiley' Rogers.  Jordan soon gained attention within the Kansas City rock and metal scene for supporting and promoting local artists and musicians through KC Anthem TV.  By 2010 KC Anthem had changed to a new format in a new location.  From a living room in South Kansas City, KC Anthem TV was pioneering Internet broadcasting in Kansas City.  It was also during this time that Mr. Smiley was beginning to become interested in Software Development and began coursework at the University of Missouri - Kansas City for a Computer Science Degree.  Jordan is an experienced ASP.NET Developer and the KC Anthem Web Design Department specializes in responsive HTML5 page design.
