A reader forwarded us an e-mail they recently got from KFNS, one of the approximately 17 sports talk stations in town, to show us how amazingly crappy their “E-Blast” is. They were right, it suucccckkksss! …but we weren’t exactly surprised and gather that the other stations in town offer more of the same, so they should all be paying attention instead of laughing at the back of the classroom while we whip out the ruler on poor KFNS.

KFNS Actually Found a Way to Reach Fewer People Tuesday Morning
If you noticed a distinct lack of “sports” talk that is 8 parts gay jokes and 2 parts Mizzou talk, its probably because your only choice for sports talk was 101ESPN‘s Mike & Mike in the Morning after Monday night’s storm kicked over the flattened out coat hanger 590 AM KFNS uses to broadcast. The morning static was confirmed by the station’s morning show host, Tim McKernan… McKernan, who’s InsideSTL.com handles most of the day’s programming on KFNS, did their show through the internets until the station came back on line a few hours later.

Grand Slam Sports Buys KFNS and JoeSportsFanSTL.com

Did We Miss Anything?
If you didn’t know, we were on vacation most of last week (and it turned out, yesterday as well…whoops!). So, what did we miss? Now back in the saddle, here’s what we could figure out: A few months back, two cops from LaGrange shot a chained dog. Now its a viral video. (See what I did there? I linked to a story the RFT did instead of just doing the repeat thing which isn’t our style…but happens. [Read More]
The Morning After Moves to KFNS
When there’s smoke there’s fire, and we have been swamped with both anonymous tips and confirmations from reliable sources all saying that 1380’s popular morning show The Morning After will be moving to competing AM sports talk venue KFNS as with in the next 30-45 days. The morning show, staffed by front man Tim McKernan, Jim Hayes and Doug Vaughn has been KSLG 1380AM’s only decent property for some time now, with the rest of their day-part covered by bottom feeding shows and closing out with St. [Read More]
Something is Different With ‘The Morning After’…
We didn’t care one bit about the news a few weeks back that sports talk host Tim McKernan, in conjunction with InsideSTL.com, was buying the first half of the day on the stumpy-towered 1380 AM, but we have to say, the usually funny Morning After show on 1380 has tanked recently. The new focus on interviewing broads for another show has taken the time that was usually filled with actual talk about sports. [Read More]
Are 1380 the Team and 590 the Fan For Sale?
We know for a fact there have been talks about selling each of these stations before and we have have heard the continuing rumors since and we are hearing them again. Both Simmons (who owns Team 1380) and Big League Broadcasting (who owns 590 The Fan) are rumored to be looking for buyers of their AM signal. Of course both General Managers will tell you otherwise, the fact is the decision to sell isn’t up to them. [Read More]
Brian McKenna Jumping to 1380?
…and the St. Louis sports talk orgy continues… We have just received word that Brian McKenna, formally of KFNS 590 is jumping from one sinking ship to another as he will be starting as cohost of the Bernie Miklasz Show (2p-6p) as soon as tomorrow (Feb 9th). We know that Bernie has had his share of cohosts since Randy Karraker was let go due to budget constraints (and later landed with the new 101 ESPN). [Read More]
