KYKY 98.1 FM Y98 has signed a multi-year contract extension with Guy Phillips, keeping the popular anchor of St. Louis’ highly rated The Phillips & Company Morning Show in his familiar time slot of weekdays from 5:30 – 10:00 AM.
Since 1979, Phillips has been the cornerstone of morning radio at 98.1 FM in St. Louis, bringing listeners his fun guest interviews and interesting takes on local and national events.
Phillips added, “I’ve been one of the luckiest guys to ever work in this business. I have had steady employment over five decades in St. Louis and I haven’t once failed to laugh, on the air and off, on any of those days. I work with a crew that is not only passionate about their jobs but have compassion for one another. I thank a great radio company in CBS RADIO for their enduring trust and support. Most importantly, I am filled with gratitude for my listeners and this community at large who, through it all, continue to support my buffoonery.”
The Phillips & Company Morning Show on Y98 is comprised of Phillips, Courtney Landrum, Jen Myers, Kevin “the Intern,” and Lance Hildebrand.

Phillips remains one of the most sought-after event emcees in the area. He lends himself to many charitable organizations and donates hundreds of hours of service in the metro area. St. Patrick’s Center, Central Institute for the Deaf, and Ronald McDonald House Children’s Charities are just a few of the many charitable organizations he supports. Phillips is also a board member of the Derrik S. Sabada Memorial Scholarship Fund, the St. Louis Men’s Group Against Cancer, Friends of Kids with Cancer, and Cinema St. Louis.
Phillips’ commitment to the industry goes well beyond the boundaries of St. Louis. Within the past two years, he has established a scholarship at his alma mater, New Mexico State University, for students pursuing excellence in a broad range of media, including radio, with the “Guy Phillips Media Endowed Scholarship Fund.” Phillips’ wish is to provide the university financial assistance in perpetuity for need-based students to follow their dreams.
