More Musings Coming from Mighty Miklasz

Article excerpt

For 23 years, Post-Dispatch sports fans have enjoyed the insights, witticisms and commentary of columnist Bernie Miklasz, whose tireless work ethic is matched by his wide breadth of knowledge.

"I'll be at the ready all day to write," he said. He wants to incorporate what the Post-Dispatch beat writers and columnists are covering with his insights and interviewing skills.

"Breakfast with Bernie" will be an unscripted, somewhat unpredictable range of topics that champion timeliness and thoughtfulness over a polished studio production. Miklasz has done sports radio since the early 1980s, so his skills weaving together an informative and interesting commentary are well-honed. …
