ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Former news anchor Larry Conners will be broadcasting again in St. Louis. He will be the new host of the “Big” 550 KTRS’ weeknight news-talk program. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Conners will be on from 9pm to midnight.
Conners writes in a Facebook post, “Radio has always been my first love since I started in broadcasting at age 16.”
He says that the show will be a mix of interviews, news, commentary and history. Conners will replace lawyer Scott Sherman. He will continue as a regular guest and fill-in host to discuss legal matters.
Conners was fired from KMOV-TV after a controversial Facebook post in May 2013. Since then he has been guest hosting on local radio stations and endorsing products in commercials.
The official announcement came during an interview on McGraw Milhaven’s show on KTRS at 8am. Milhaven was named as the station’s program director last week.
