KTRS is LIVE and LOCAL. Here’s what we have going on during the month of JULY:
Spotlight: John Carney
For over 40 years, St. Louisans’ have found comfort in the fact that there has been a Carney on-air in St. Louis. Carney’s commitment to a career in radio came on the heels of his father’s advice, the late legendary radio great Jack Carney.
Weekdays from Noon until 3pm, John Carney holds court with an easygoing charm and a kitchen-sink approach to radio. Carney's catchall show — aptly named The John Carney Show — includes everything from Hollywood gossip to tips from financial experts and visits from comedians and musicians. Best of all, Carney holds the whole mess together with his lovably gruff verve and occasionally bemused — but never cynical —demeanor.
Off the air John can be found around town playing with his one of his bands. His other passion is helping kids. It was from this that the “Carney’s Kids Foundation” was born. The organization raises awareness and funds each year for several children’s charities. For more info on the foundation, check out www.carneyskids.org
Follow The Carney Show on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
