The resurrected Sports KFNS-A (590 THE FAN)/ST. LOUIS, back on the air since NOVEMBER after being leased to RANDY MARKEL and SCOTT GERKEN, has a new morning host coming in, and ALL ACCESS hears that it's veteran sports talker DINO COSTA, who will host 6-9a (CT) on the station.
COSTA, a veteran of sports radio in JACKSONVILLE and DENVER, hosted at SIRIUSXM and has been doing a show online over the past few years. He will continue his Internet show while hosting the KFNS edition.
MARKEL said, "When we purchased our station we set out to find the most dynamic and needle-moving voice we could locate. We wanted someone with the ability to shake up the market and make people stand up and take notice ... The consistent buzz and press that DINO accumulated during his time doing national radio with SIRIUSXM is indisputable and I have no reason but to believe that will be something he generates for us here in ST. LOUIS ... By bookending our lineup with DINO handling our mornings and long-time ST. LOUIS mainstay KEVIN SLATEN in the afternoons, we feel like we're delivering St. Louisians with the hardest hitting and most interesting sports talk radio possible. The city of ST. LOUIS is ripe for DINO's style of radio, and we can't wait for his show to begin."
