KMOX Adds 'Sports Hub' For Weeknights
January 27, 2011 at 11:55 AM (PT)
CBS RADIO Talk KMOX-A/ST. LOUIS fills the slot left vacant by the move of weeknight host JOHN CARNEY to sister AC KEZK (FRESH 102.5)/ST. LOUIS for mornings by launching a new nightly sports show, "THE SPORTS HUB," 9p-midnight (CT) starting MONDAY (1/31). The show will be hosted by ST. LOUIS BLUES voice CHRIS KERBER, ST. LOUIS CARDINALS television play-by-play announcer DAN MCLAUGHLIN, market veteran and CARDINALS RADIO NETWORK broadcaster MIKE CLAIBORNE, and MISSOURI VALLEY CONFERENCE TV network voice SCOTT WARMANN.
PD STEVE MOORE said, "With the addition of the ST. LOUIS CARDINALS play by play to our ST. LOUIS BLUES and MIZZOU coverage, it was natural for the station to become more sports focused at night. (Sports Director) TOM ACKERMAN and his team are the standard for Sports Talk in ST. LOUIS and we are excited to be able to expand our coverage to give listeners consistent live sports talk and play by play at night..."
ACKERMAN added, "The expanded roles for CHRIS KERBER and DAN MCLAUGHLIN along with the additions of MIKE CLAIBORNE and SCOTT WARMANN to an already great sports staff, gives us the credible lineup KMOX listeners expect. We're excited to expand our live and local sports coverage to 6p-Midnight every day."
