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.

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.

McKenna on Matheny: Check the Scoreboard

posted on

By Brian McKenna

I'm not saying that Mike Matheny is the best manager in the game and I disagree with some of his moves and decisions. We would all agree (including Matheny) that he still has room for improvement. With that being said, I find those who bash him laughable. You can bitch and moan all you want to, but deal with these facts:

1. As of June 26, his team has the best record in baseball. We can only judge him on the first 77 games thus far this season. Of course, that could change and the Cards have a rough stretch after the All-Star break.

2. Since the beginning of the 2012 season, only two National League teams have more regular-season victories than Matheny's Cardinals: the Reds and Braves. His team went further than both of those clubs in the post-season. When you consider that the Cardinals lost a Hall-of-Fame manager in La Russa (jerk), one of the greatest players of his generation in Pujols (phony) and one of the greatest pitching coaches of all time (Dave Duncan), Matheny gets major props for getting to the LCS.

3. Only four teams made the LCS last season: Cards, Giants, N.Y. Yankees and the Tigers. Considering all the injuries the team has suffered since the start of the 2012 season and all the youngsters who have had to fill in holes, Matheny has done a really good job in his first year and a half as the Cards’ manager.

You don't have to like those facts, but they are indisputable. The same fans who won't give him credit for winning are the first to rip him when they lose. You either don't understand it's all about winning or you're jealous because your wife or girlfriend thinks he's hot. Maybe both. Next time some illiterate Matheny hater starts getting stupid, just give him/her the facts or say one word: "SCOREBOARD." That should shut them up.
