Anyways, since the inception of our podcast, we were committed to talking to some well-known mainstream media members on the show and providing them a platform to have a little fun. Media members with a strong mix of intelligence, honesty and personality aren’t pervasive in this town, but they’re definitely out there.
Rene Knott is a guy who most people see for a few minutes here and there on KSDK telecasts. We were pleased to have him on the show this week and provide the JSF contingent a chance to hear him away from the bounds of a news teleprompter.
Featured Guest: Rene Knott, the sports director at KSDK Channel 5.
Total Running Length: 47:35
Random, yet contextual, St. Louis sports references: Whitey Herzog, Whitey Herzog’s sating jacket, Dmitri Young, Bobby Bonilla, Mike Bush, Bernie Federko, Richie Incognito,
