BONNEVILLE Sports WMVN/ST. LOUIS adds another name to the mix for its JANUARY 1st debut of the new format, bringing on METRO NETWORKS sports anchor TOM CASEY as afternoon sports update anchor. CASEY, whose METRO reports air on crosstown SIMMONS Sports KSLG-A and who worked at CH HOLDINGS Talk-Sports KTRS-A as post-game and between-periods host on ST. LOUIS BLUES game broadcasts, will join the SPORTS/TALK 101.1 staff on DECEMBER 15th in advance of the flip from the present CHRISTMAS music stunting.
"Joining 101.1 FM and BONNEVILLE is a great opportunity. I’m thrilled to be joining what appears to be the formation of an outstanding lineup of sports broadcasters," said CASEY. "Working with teammates old and new is a very exciting aspect to what appears to be the start of a special team of sports broadcasting talent."
PD JASON BARRETT added, "TOM has demonstrated throughout his career that he’s one of the best anchors in this business. His proficient writing skills, attention to detail and commitment to broadcasting excellence are something I believe our listeners will benefit from and greatly enjoy. TOM has a huge passion for the ST. LOUIS BLUES, and I’m confident that his coverage of the team will be a huge hit with the hockey-hungry fans in this city."
