Brad Choat

brad choat Brad ChoatReporter/editor Brad Choat joined the KMOX news team in the summer of 2006. The 1993 University of Missouri-Columbia graduate is a Metro-East native.

Brad began putting his Mizzou journalism degree to good use by first landing a reporter’s job at WBYS-AM/FM in Canton, Illinois and later serving as talk show host and news director. He went on to spend nearly nine years as news director and morning show co-host at WJEQ-FM in Macomb, Illinois (Brad blames the St. Louis Rams’ downturn on the team abandoning Macomb as its summer training camp site).

Brad has won numerous awards during his career in broadcasting, including the Illinois Associated Press “Newsfinder of the Year” and “Best Feature” honors.

When he’s not chasing down leads and interviews, Brad enjoys shuttling his two children to school, practices, and meetings. He is a member of the Granite City Elks Lodge and cubmaster of his son’s Cub Scout pack.

Brad is married to his Granite City High School sweetheart, Stacey. The Choats love sports, music, and spending time with family.
