Best Sports Call-In Radio Show St. Louis 2001 - Motorsports Weekly, KFNS (590 AM)
Motorsports Weekly has to be the fastest two hours of sports radio in the area. The time seems to fly by for a number of reasons. Radio personalities Tony Hubert, Tim Woody and Ken Roberts have a classic dynamic: Hubert is the no-nonsense (sometimes even strident) ringleader, the know-it-all -- in short, the Moe. Woody is the high-voiced, excitable Flavor Flav to Hubert's Chuck D, chiming in with his comments and japes. He must be the Curly. This leaves Ken Roberts, the laconic guy barraged with teasing by the other two. This poor man has been cast as the Shemp. May the good Lord bless them all. Who knew that there was this much to talk about? Between the IRL/CART schism, NASCAR, driver deaths, virulent affections and dislikes for various drivers, dragging, powerboating, motorcycling, Gateway International Raceway, the Tri-City Speedway, celebrity guests, the often astute comments from callers and much more controversy than the casual racing fan may be aware of, Motorsports Weekly can turn you on to racing. There is so much to cram into the two-hour show, and the hosts are so excited about it that they're constantly interrupting one another on-air. This show, unlike KMOX Sports Open Line, has not grown stale. (Smack!) Check out Motorsports Weekly at 7 p.m. on Wednesdays.
