Richard J. Miller

(KTVI)- St. Louis Radio Hall of Fame member, Richard J. Miller, has died.  In 1958, Miller acquired KXLW, starting his career in St. Louis. He added KADI-FM in 1969.  His local stations were a launching point for many other well known local radio personalities.

Miller is known for starting weekly oldies shows on Sunday nights at his stations. He also was one of the first to promote using station posters. Many have gone on to become collectables.

Miller sold all his radio properties in the mid 1990s when he became chairman of Truman Bank. He was inducted into the St. Louis Radio Hall of Fame in 2005.
