ST. LOUIS doesn’t have an NFL team any more, but the KANSAS CITY CHIEFS are looking to grab some new fans from the other side of MISSOURI by adding new affiliates to the CHIEFS RADIO NETWORK, CBS RADIO News-Talk KMOX-A and Sports KYKY-HD3/ST. LOUIS. The CHIEFS RADIO NETWORK, operated by CUMULUS MEDIA, is based at flagship CUMULUS Classic Rock KCFX (101 THE FOX)/KANSAS CITY.
“We are excited to have KMOX joining the CHIEFS RADIO NETWORK team and providing CHIEFS game broadcasts throughout the season in the ST. LOUIS market,” CHIEFS Pres. MARK DONOVAN said.
“When expanding CHIEFS Kingdom to additional markets, our objective is to serve the fans, the affiliate station and their community, and the KANSAS CITY CHIEFS in the best partnership for all three entities. We are thrilled to include KMOX, one of the most iconic stations in the country, in our award-winning NFL broadcast coverage platform,” said CUMULUS MIDWEST and KANSAS CITY Regional VP DONNA BAKER.
"As AMERICA’s Sports Voice and home to all pro sports in ST. LOUIS, KMOX is proud to add the KANSAS CITY CHIEFS to our lineup,” said CBS RADIO ST. LOUIS SVP JOHN SHEEHAN. “The CHIEFS have a lot in common with our ST. LOUIS teams -- committed ownership, leadership and players wanting to win it all for their rabid fan base. We look forward to partnering with the CHIEFS and broadcasting the games on KMOX's 50,000-watt signal to CHIEFS fans in ST. LOUIS and beyond.”
The CHIEFS network is also adding CBS affiliate KCTV (TV)/KANSAS CITY reporter and former women’s football player DANI WELNIAK as a sideline reporter.
