MARKEL MEDIA Sports KFNS-A (590 THE FAN)/ST. LOUIS morning host DINO COSTA has exited the station just six weeks after joining the resurrected station.
The ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH's DAN CAESAR reports that COSTA, a veteran of sports radio in JACKSONVILLE and DENVER and SIRIUSXM, said he is leaving because of his discomfort with a management restructuring in the works, although owner RANDY MARKEL told the paper that nothing is in progress; however, CAESAR reports that KFNS is pursuing TIM MCKERNAN, the operator and morning co-host of crosstown Sports WGNU-A-KPNT-HD2 (CBS SPORTS RADIO 920), to run its operation, and COSTA has been critical of MCKERNAN on the air.
COSTA praised MARKEL in comments to CAESAR and said that he did not want to work for someone other than MARKEL before moving to ST. LOUIS from his home in WYOMING.
