Longtime St. Louis broadcaster Bob Hamilton died from complications due to COVID-19 last week, he was 82. Hamilton was an iconic figure who graced the airwaves at KMOX from 1982 -2014.

“Bob Hamilton truly was THE voice of St. Louis,” said KMOX host Charles Brennan. “That deep, smooth voice of his was so soothing, so calm, like everything was going to be alright.” Hamilton got his break in the St. Louis market with KSD (550 am) in 1981.

Hamilton attended high school just outside St. Louis in University City. He graduated from Westminster College.  He began his radio career in Fulton, Mo.

“I sang in the church choir when I was little, but I don’t think I was that good. I would just spend hours and hours reading, borrow a little from this and a little from that and come up with something.”

“In high school, I always wanted to be in radio — the people in radio were my heroes,” Hamilton explained to the Riverfront Times when he was named “Best Radio Voice in 2000.

Hamilton was hospitalized with kidney failure for several days before he passed.

Nationally syndicated radio host Dana Loesch criticized “The View’s” Alyssa Farah Griffin for critical comments she made about right-leaning cable news channel One America News Network (OAN) during a segment on MSNBC.

Farah Griffin was discussing the raid on former President Donald Trump’s residence. Loesch played a soundbite, identifying Farah Griffin as one of the new conservative commentators who recently joined “The View.” 

“One thing I will note is this, the narrative that you are going to hear a lot from the right is that Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information,” Farah Griffin said. I would note that OAN and extremist right networks put out a statement saying this is war.” 

Loesch said Farah Griffin’s rant fell short of being effective, seeing as how she wasn’t addressing people that would likely act out in case of political retribution.

“I don’t think those are the people that she needs to be lecturing,” Loesch said.
Loesch spoke to James Golden aka “Bo Snerdley” who served as Rush Limbaugh’s producer/phone screen for the better part of 30 years. 

Golden said Farah Griffin’s comments were meant to provoke a reaction from “American Patriots.”

New York talk personalities “Bernie & Sid,” told their 77 WABC audience Tuesday that the mainstream media rejoiced following a federal raid on the home of former President Donald Trump. 

Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence was raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Monday. According to Fox News Digital, agents were looking for confidential government documents that Trump allegedly held onto after leaving office.

“Everything they accuse Donald Trump of, they are,” said Bernie McGuirk. “Back when his supporters were chanting lock Hillary Clinton up, they were calling Trump a dictator.” 

The guys played a montage of soundbites from left-leaning pundits scolding Trump for vowing to use federal resources to investigate claims that Clinton was involved in alleged nefarious acts related to the Russia probe during the 2016 Presidential election. 

“So, he was the dictator?” said McGuirk. “I don’t think so; he never locked her up. Also, CNN had a panel and on the panel was a New York Times reporter suggesting that they (FBI) found paper in the toilet. I mean, come on, give me a break.” 

Rosenburg added that the best way to support Trump during this period of uncertainty is to follow him on Truth Social.
