Bob Burnes - 2014
Bob Burnes, "The Benchwarmer," was the first host of KMOX’s “Sports on a Sunday”, the hugely popular roundup of the previous week’s sports highlights. In addition, he was a host several times per week of the station’s “Sports Open Line” call-in show, and it is believed he hosted the premier broadcast of that program as well. Burnes often shared the microphone with other sports reporters on the show, which he hosted through the mid-1980s. In addition to his long stint on KMOX Radio, Burnes was a legendary sports reporter and columnist for the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
