Rick Wallace is a proud ‘NoCo guy’-having grown up in Florissant. He is a graduate of McCluer High School, attended classes at Florissant Valley and Meramec Community Colleges and is a graduate of The Broadcast Center in St. Louis.
Except for about 4 years when he worked at small market radio stations in Carrollton, Mo., Lexington, Mo., Mt. Vernon, Ill. and Terre Haute, Ind., Rick has resided in the St Louis area and has listened to KMOX since his boyhood “transistor radio” days.
Rick likes to think of himself as a “utility player” in radio and jokes that he’s “played all 9 positions” during his career. He’s been a DJ for at least 7 different musical formats. He’s hosted sports talk shows, been a sports reporter and has done play-by-play for high school football and basketball, college basketball and professional indoor soccer.
Rick also has extensive experience as a traffic reporter, news editor and newscaster.
Rick presently works weekends at KMOX as a news editor and on-air news anchor.
His hobbies include working out, hiking and biking, television and motion picture history, reading and collecting beer cans. (His collection recently eclipsed the 1,000 can plateau)
He has 2 children, a son and a daughter, and resides in St Charles.
