‘St. Louis Talks’ to replace Rush Limbaugh’s show on KMOX


ST. LOUIS, Mo. – KMOX is going local to replace Rush Limbaugh’s former midday show from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm. The broadcaster died in February.

The radio station has announced that the new midday show will be called “St. Louis Talks.” It will feature KMOX personalities Carol Daniel, Ryan Wrecker, and Bo Matthews. You can hear it on weekdays from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm starting May 3, 2021.

Daniel is an award-winning anchor and reporter. She most recently celebrated her 26th anniversary with the station. Now, her title is Talk Show Host.

“I actually did meet with my program director and said if you would have me, I would love to do the show,” Daniel said.

The program director said yes.

“This is a dream come true for me to host a show on a historic radio station with talented, funny and curious people like Bo and Ryan,” writes Daniel. “My goal is to bring listeners stories about the people, places and things in the region we all love but want so much more out of.”

The Rush Limbaugh Show was one of the few non-local shows on KMOX. It was on from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm for nearly three decades. Conservative commentator Dan Bongino is replacing Rush at other stations who are not producing local content.

“We look forward to Carol, Ryan, and Bo working in tandem with the KMOX newsroom to report and react on local, regional and national topics that affect our community as we continue building on our position as the voice of St. Louis,” writes Becky Domyan, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Audacy St. Louis.

“We want to explore this region in a way that KMOX used to many, many decades ago. That’s who we are, that’s who we were, the voice of St. Louis,” Daniel said.

2:00 am – 4:00 am: Our American Stories

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
