ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A new Sports Illustrated article out today from St. Louis native Joan Niesen focuses on KMOX and its longstanding sports broadcasting history.

The article draws special attention to the relationship between KMOX and the St. Louis Cardinals. Niesen interviewed big-name sportscasters with ties to the station, like Bob Costas, Joe Buck, Mike Shannon, John Rooney, Ron Jacober, John Kelly, Bill Wilkerson and Tom Ackerman; Cards’ exec Bill DeWitt III; and Frank Absher, a former KMOX announcer who’s now director of the St. Louis Media History Foundation.

Niesen has a master’s degree in journalism from Mizzou.
