He worked at WSTM-TV – an NBC-affiliated television station in Syracuse, New York – prior to joining MSNBC, a cable-news channel. While at MSNBC, he anchored overnight MSNBC Now news updates as well as MSNBC's First Look and broadcast network NBC's Early Today, both early-morning news programs; Kloeffler left MSNBC in 2009.
In response to the news that actor Zachary Quinto had come out as gay, Kloeffler publicly came out on the air in October 2011. In a statement on the ABC News website, he wrote that a series of suicides by gay youth also led him to hope his being publicly out would help encourage young gay people struggling to accept themselves.
