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.

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.

Burton's Take on The Advertising World We Live In

posted on
Infomercials are the devil but are they so different than regular commercials? I was watching late night TV a few days back and noticed something that upset me. You know that commercial for that black spray that they sprayed on a screen door then used it as the bottom of a boat to show how it's so water proof? Well they have a new product, but it's clear! The infomercial shows a drill making holes in a plane of plexiglass. Then of course it was used as the bottom of a boat. With the camera angle the dude was waving at fish swimming under the water tight boat courtesy of this amazing product. If you read the fine print it tells you that the pieces of plexiglass that were bored out were put back in then sprayed with this miracle product! This is why I got upset. How deceitful of them to put that little tidbit in tiny words at the bottom of the screen. Rip off! Dishonest! That was my initial reaction. Then I thought that is the advertising world we live in. It's not just those late night infomercials. Watch any fast food joint's commercial. Then go into one and order what you saw on TV...or on the menu board. Does it look like that when you get it? Ummm not even close. A few months back I was at a fast food joint in St.Charles having lunch with a friend. I got a burger and fries. Holy crapola was it not even close to the picture on the board!! Even worse, ask about it. Why does this not look like that? I asked...The genius behind the counter offered no help. You know why? Because he doesn't have to. It is what it is. Late night infomercials are no more or less deceiving than "legit" commercials and signage especially when it comes to food. You think Suzy in the drive thru is really gonna smile and be real happy you are ordering lunch? No she's upset because she had to put her cigarette out to take your order! Having said that...I'll have a Big Mac no shred and no pickles and a side of dehydrated onions please....It is what it is...
