St.Louis Radio: Former TV Anchor Larry ConnersTo Join KTRS

Larry Conners
Beginning June 30, Larry Conners — fired by KMOV (Channel 4) in May 2013 — will become the full-time, nighttime host on KTRS 550 AM.

“This is a chance for me to have three hours to make contact with people and to give my opinion about important issues,” Conners told Joe Holleman at   “I started out in radio, so it’s one of my first loves,” Conners said, adding that he was still looking at possible television opportunities.

Mark Dorsey, KTRS president and general manager, said Conners would be on from 9 p.m. to midnight, Mondays through Fridays. The move was announced officially this morning on McGraw Milhaven’s show, Dorsey said. Last week, Millhaven was named as the station’s program director.

“Larry is a proven broadcaster, and we believe people in St. Louis will be dialed in and interested to hear what he has to say about issues,” Dorsey said.

Conners’ dismissal from KMOV came after he implied on Facebook that he may have been targeted by the IRS after interviewing President Barack Obama in 2012. The IRS says Conners owes $85,000 in back taxes, and it has placed a lien on his home in Clayton. Conners said he had been on a payment plan, but the IRS canceled it after the interview.
