“When expanding Chiefs Kingdom to additional markets, our objective is to serve the fans, the affiliate station and their community, and the Kansas City Chiefs in the best partnership for all three entities. We are thrilled to include KMOX, one of the most iconic stations in the country, in our award-winning NFL broadcast coverage platform,” said Donna Baker, Regional Vice-President for Cumulus Midwest and Kansas City.
“As America’s Sports Voice and home to all pro sports in St. Louis, KMOX is proud to add the Kansas City Chiefs to our lineup,” said CBS Radio St. Louis Senior Vice-President John Sheehan, “The Chiefs have a lot in common with our St. Louis teams – committed ownership, leadership and players wanting to win it all for their rabid fan base. We look forward to partnering with the Chiefs and broadcasting the games on KMOX’s 50,000 Red Hot Watts to Chiefs fans in St. Louis and beyond.”
Dan Israel, Executive Producer for Chiefs Radio Network adds, “In our 27th season airing on #1 ranked network flagship station KCFX, 101 The Fox, the broadcast is growing not only in expanded area, but we’re growing the broadcast team, as well. We’re extremely excited to welcome Dani Welniak, award-winning journalist and reporter for KCTV-5 (CBS-Kansas City).
