Lou grew up in St. Louis and was drawn to radio at an early age. After finishing high school, he went to the Broadcast Center. In August of ’99, he headed off to his first assignment in radio: the afternoon shift at KIKS in Iola, Kansas. He spent three years there before moving back to his home state of Missouri. For one year, he was the afternoon announcer for KPCR in Bowling Green. He was out of radio for nearly three years before accepting a job at KMMO in August 2006. Lou also serves as Music Director and host of the Community Spotlight. You can catch him Friday nights on the Pigskin Postgame or Roundball Wrapup, depending on the season.
Away from the job, Lou enjoys movies, karaoke and community theater. He’s a huge St. Louis Cardinals and Mizzou Tigers fan. Lou’s family is spread out across the country: his mom lives in Florida, his dad in St. Louis, he has a sister in Wisconsin and a brother in New York. His grandmother lives in Arizona and has always been his biggest supporter.
