Brett is a life-long resident of the St. Louis area, having grown up in a neighborhood in Bridgeton that now lies underneath the new Lambert Airport runway.
His family moved to Troy, Illinois when Brett was 14, and he graduated from Triad High School.
He attended SIU-Edwardsville, and shortly after receiving a Mass Communications degree in 1986, Brett began working at a series of ever-larger radio stations, bouncing around the St. Louis area and southern Illinois.
He has worked in St. Louis for several years, and prior to KMOX he was a reporter for the local Public Radio station, KWMU.
Brett married the former Kathy Crowe of Mascoutah, Illinois in May, 1990. Their only son, Devin Charles Blume, was born Feb. 6, 1998. The Blumes currently live near Edwardsville, Illinois.
