Brian McKenna

Brian McKenna has been bringing his humorous, swashbuckling style of broadcasting to the St. Louis airwaves since 1994. He began his radio career as an intern at KASP, St. Louis’ first all-sports station. In 1995, he co-hosted The Casino Queen Sports Grill weekday afternoons with KPLR Sports Director Rich Gould on 590 The Fan KFNS. Brian also worked as a reporter for Fox Sports News covering the Cardinals and the Blues. In 2000, McKenna became the newest member of The Breakfast Club with JC Corcoran on KLOU 103.3 FM. While at KLOU, he was as an analyst for the St. Louis Rams Radio Network pre/post game shows. Always the innovator, never the duplicator, he and Joe DeNiro introduced “Guy Talk” radio to the St. Louis market in the fall of 2003 with Midday Mayhem on 1380 The Team. Brian was also the host and producer of the “Rams Pregame Report” on KDNL ABC30 from 2001-2004. Brian recently hosted “Mayhem in the AM” at 590 The Fan KFNS and “Afternoon Mayhem” on 1380 The Fan2. He has written comedy for Joe Buck, been a guest on Oprah and appeared in an NBC mini-series. He received a Marketing Degree from Southeast Missouri State University. 

Brian is a former Personal Trainer and a fitness freak.  His passions are working out and surfing. Brian has been involved with many local charities and organizations including: Nurses for Newborns, American Cancer Society, National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias, Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America and Big Brothers Big Sisters to name a few. McKenna is one of 10 children and has 72 nieces and nephews. Brian resides in St. Louis Hills.

Jeff Burton

Jeff Burton was born and raised in Fenton, MO and attended Vianney, Eureka and Lindbergh High Schools.  He got a start in radio in Springfield, MO in 1986 and then came to St. Louis three months after 105.7 The Point came on the air where he hosted the Jeff, Trish and Thom Show until The Point was sold to Emmis. After 11 months on Red@ 104.9 Burton was reunited with Thom West for the afternoons on The Point where they remained as the No. 1 noon show in St. Louis for nearly seven straight years. Jeff had several broadcast opportunities outside the country that include Sydney for the 2000 Olympics and Dublin, Ireland over St. Patrick’s Day.  Later in 2011, Thom and Jeff started doing podcasts at thethomandjeffshow.com and on iTunes. Jeff helped launch internet radio in St. Louis via talkstl.com. In Jeff’s free time, he enjoys letting the wind hit his face riding a 2007 Suzuki Boulevard. Jeff resides in Eureka with Juli and their two daughters, Abby and Casey.

Act Like You Been There

Johnny Manziel=Ryan Leaf?

I'm just asking. It's partly our fault. When I say OUR, what I mean is US. We as consumers put these people on a platform waaay too soon. What happened to giving praise AFTER you did something good?

Yes, Johnny Football had a special season in college football last year. Yes, he was a team leader at age 20. Yes, he has special college football player talent. My question is: so what? He is getting a free education in exchange for this special talent. Why isn't that enough for the football crazy viewing audience? Why can't you people just wait and see what he does in the next season of college football?

I have not heard too many people saying he is going to take the big leap to the NFL and do the same special things he is doing in college football. Is it possible he can have a long successful starting QB job in the NFL? Of course it is. But the amount of coverage ESPN and the like are giving is a bit silly. Of course, ESPN has shown it's true colors recently by going all TMZ on him. But that’s the way this works. You are put on a mountain in hopes of falling down off the other side.

And Johnny Football is playing right into everyone’s hand.

Watch this kid walk from point A to point B at media day. He is surrounded by security, college officials and I’m sure a few hangers on. Wouldn’t that go to your head too? He is loving all the attention. He is feeding into the very machine that will cover him as much if not more IF he falls off this crest he is on.

Memo to Johnny: act like you been there before.

Memo to Johnny Football’s family: If you can’t be his NO guy then find someone who can be.

There's a good chance Johnny QB may flop at the next level or even at the next season of college ball so he should not burn bridges. Bridges that can keep him in the game as a coach or scout or whatever. Just don’t be a d-bag and the relationships you are forming now may help you stay in the game in another capacity.

There are a lot of former college players that had special talent and or a special season that would like to speak with you about your insurance needs.
