"GregGagne4HOF" has been lucky enough to be granted an interview with Steven St. John of WHB 810 AM's "Border Patrol" next week, easily one of the best sports shows in the Midwest.

Here's his bio on the 810 webpage:

Steven St. John is a proud Mexican-American who has called Kansas City, Missouri home for his entire life. He grew up in the Northeast neighborhood of Kansas City and graduated from St. Pius X High School before spending his first two years of college attending Missouri Western State College in St. Joseph, Missouri. St. John graduated from the University of Missouri - Kansas City where he earned a BA in English. St. John joined Union Broadcasting in 1998 as a jack-of-all-trades, master of none. St. John, a former boxer, was first heard on the airwaves of Sports Radio 1510 as the co-host of the ?Kansas City Boxing Report?, with his close friend, the late Randie Carver, one of the most talented boxers in the history of the Kansas City fight game who tragically died in the ring in 1999.

St. John soon took over the night shift in 1999 as Sports Radio 1510 became Sports Radio 810 WHB. He hosted ?The Steven St. John Show? which enjoyed a cult-like following of 27 people.

During this time, he also hosted or co-hosted ?The Kansas City Chiefs Post-Game Show?, ?College Football Gameday?, ?The Alexi Lalas Show?, ?The Kansas City Golf Hour? ?The Chiefs Tradition Hour with Otis Taylor?, ?FitNow 2000?, and ?Out of Bounds? with Tony Meola and Marcus Spears. St. John also served as the color commentator for WHB?s High School Football game of the week from 2000-03. After spending 2 years hosting the evening show on WHB, St. John moved to the mornings where he co-hosted ?Jason Whitlock?s Neighborhood? until 2003 when he moved to WHB?s former sister station 97.3 the Planet to work morning drive on the FM dial. On 97.3, St. John co-hosted shows with Randy Miller and Doug Medlock.

While broadcasting on 97.3, St. John was named the 2004 Radio Personality of the Year in Kansas City by Media Mix. Later in 2004, St. John found his way back to where he belongs at WHB where he currently co-hosts The Border Patrol with Bob Fescoe, weekday mornings from 6-9.

He also currently co-hosts ?The Extra Point? with Kendall Gammon of the Kansas City Chiefs every Tuesday night during the NFL season. ?The Extra Point? is simulcast live on WHB and on television on Metro Sports.

St. John was also part of the original ownership group of Titan Entertainment, one of the Midwest?s most successful promoters of professional boxing. Titan has been responsible for bringing Showtime Championship Boxing and ESPN Tuesday Night Fights to Kansas City, as well as the conception of the popular ?Clash of the Titans? boxing series at Historic Union Station.

St. John?s heroes are his mother, John F. Kennedy, Elvis Presley, Muhammad Ali, George Brett, John Belushi, Bill Clinton and Fonzie.

St. John has never missed an episode of ?The Sopranos?, ?24? or ?Entourage?. Ever. St. John enjoys a wide variety of music, but prefers Guns ?N? Roses, Elvis, The White Stripes, George Strait and Tenacious D. His favorite movies are ?Scarface?, ?GoodFellas?, ?Casino?, ?Carlito?s Way?, ?A Bronx Tale?, ?Blood in, Blood Out?, ?Rocky 2?, ?Saturday Night Fever?, ?Grease?, ?Anchorman?, ?Dazed and Confused?, ?Road Trip?, ?Superman 2? and ?Mi Familia?.

He passionately roots for the Kansas City Royals, Kansas City Chiefs and Missouri Tigers. St. John lives in the Northland with his wife and two sons (best friends), Richie and Phil.

Wow. He's done just about anything and everything through the years. Just reading that I'm glad to see him getting some love.
