Carney Takes on More at KMOX


Venhaus, Lynn, St. Louis Journalism Review


With an opportunity to do more comedy and entertainment, the affable John Carney has renewed a three-year contract with KMOX (1120 AM). Carney will still take the mike from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.; starting in July, he'll work Sundays through Thursdays.

Tentatively on July 8, KMOX will unveil a new Sunday entertainment show with Carney at the helm, replacing Harry Hamm's entertainment and trivia show from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. The new show is currently under development, according to Tom Langmyer, operations manager.

"It's going to be a different type of show, not necessarily trivia," Langmyer said. "He'll have a lot of guests and be more entertainment-based.

"It's in the planning stages now. John's real excited about that. He'll be able to include comedy stuff and longer interviews."

As for Hamm, Langmyer said he wanted to cut back on the Sunday gig and focus more on entertainment reporting. "Harry wants to do other entertainment-type things, such as specials on entertainment," Langmyer said. "He's going to add a couple more reports during the week."

Hamm took over doing the Sunday night show after David Strauss,' "Mr. Trivia," defected to KTRS in spring 1996, with entertainment increasingly emphasized more than trivia during its run.

On Friday nights, instead of "The Carney Show" from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., the overnight guy, Jon Grayson, will handle those duties.

In yet another shake-up of the KTRS (550 AM) newsroom, reporter Shawn Balint was fired and news director Dale Forbis had some duties shifted to the station's iron man, Tom Calhoun, several weeks ago. Calhoun, the longtime Metro East veteran who survived the WIBV (1260 AM) takeover in 1996, is now acting as news supervisor.

Operations Manager Fred Zielonko said it was just a matter of reorganization. Forbis has been handling morning drive duties. "Since we like what he's doing there, we've turned over some of his duties to Tom Calhoun," he said. "Tom's taking an active role in the newsroom and doing less production work."

With Balint's departure, the news staff has been reduced to five. Forbis came from radio news in Kansas City last summer, replacing the esteemed Joan Boeckmann as news director.

Fired morning host Darrell Ankarlo has slapped the station with a breach-of-contract lawsuit, since he was only eight months into a three-year contract when he got the heave-ho.

KMOX appears to be in no hurry to find a replacement for Randy Karraker, who signed with KTRS two months ago after contract talks with KMOX stalled. …
