Thomas Patrick Convey
Thomas Patrick Convey was, first and foremost, a promoter. In 1925 he helped organize a group of major business owners who financed the building of KMOX, which Convey then managed for a short time. He then used his own money to buy a local station that had gone off the air. KFVE’s call letters were soon changed to KWK, and Convey and his family managed their station over a couple decades. He was also frequently heard on the air as “Thomas Patrick” providing play-by-play of Cardinals’ and Browns’ games on the station. His son Bob took over management of the station after his death in 1934.
