CBS RADIO Talk KMOX-A/ST. LOUIS has upped Sports OM TOM ACKERMAN to Sports Dir. ACKERMAN, who anchors sports on the station's "TOTAL INFORMATION A.M." morning show, also oversees KMOX' longrunning "KMOX SPORTS OPEN LINE" evening show with KEVIN WHEELER and "SPORTS ON A SUNDAY MORNING" with RON JACOBER.
The station also airs ST. LOUIS BLUES hockey and UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI football and basketball.
KMOX PD STEVE MOORE said, "TOM brings the same intense passion for KMOX and more specifically to sports programming as the names from our past with talent to lead us into the future. Like JACK BUCK and RON JACOBER who preceded him as Sports Dir., TOM is active in the community and understands the importance of relationships with local civic and business leaders."
ACKERMAN added, "It is truly an honor to have the title of Sports Dir. at KMOX. I have a deep respect for the station's history and I'm excited about its future."
