101 ESPN adds local hosts


Bonneville’s 101 ESPN St. Louis (WXOS-FM) has added sports and broadcast radio vets Zach McCrite and Rick Venturi to their daily morning programming.  The yet-to-be-named mid-morning show is set to debut 3/21 at 9:00 am CT. This, after the recent announcement that Bob Stelton would be leaving 101 ESPN and joining 710 ESPN in his native Seattle.

McCrite – a Jeffersonville, Indiana native – currently serves as one of the co-hosts of “Kentucky Sports Radio” with Matt Jones on Talk Radio 1080 WKJK in Louisville, the home of Western Kentucky Basketball and Football and the University of Kentucky Wildcats’ Women’s Basketball.

Venturi, who was featured as an analyst on 101 ESPN during the St. Louis Rams 2010-2011 season, was selected to co-host with McCrite because of his knowledge of and experience with St. Louis’ professional sports teams. He spent  over 35 years coaching in the NFL and College ranks.
