Shortly after Ray Otis took over as host of the KXOK morning show, it became the top morning show in the market. Another one of the deep-voiced guys on the Big 630’s airwaves during the heyday of the 60s, Otis began his eight-year stint here in 1962. His affable on-air approach led to regular appearances on his show by St. Louis Mayor A.J. Cervantes and many others.
Schooled in programming by Myron Jones and the famed Storz men, Jack Thayer and Harvey Glasscock, Ray Otis became KXOK’s program director.
Otis left St. Louis for a job at WNEW-AM in New York. He also hosted a network show.
