St.Louis Radio: J-C Corcoran Joins KXFN-AM For AM Drive

J-C Corcoran
St. Louis Radio veteran and Chicago native, J.C. Corcoran is back on the airwaves, working full-time. He is the new morning show host for KXFN 1380 AM in St. Louis, beginning today.

Cororan  is best known for his 30 years on St. Louis radio. Most recently, he had been doing fill-in shifts for Chicago's WGN 720 AM and WLS890 AM.

Cocoran and Kevin Slaten, who have worn bad-boy hats on the St. Louis airwaves for decades, form the programming bookends of KXFN. And, according to,  Howard Balzer and Charlie “Tuna” Edwards are coming on board, too.

The station recently was leased by — a web-based programming provider.

Kevin Slaten
The first move was to put longtime St. Louis sports-talk firebrand Slaten (The King's Court) in afternoon drive-time slot (3-6 p.m.), when he has been doing his customary raucous show since mid-March.

Starting Monday, the station’s lineup grows again. The marquee name among the newcomers is Corcoran, who will be in the morning-drive slot (7-9 a.m.). Although he doesn’t do a sports show per se, he frequently touches on athletics. And sports will be the focus of the station throughout most of the day.

Longtime St. Louis sports talkers Balzer and Edwards at first were set to arrive April 20 from WQQX 1490 AM, but that has been moved up to this week — though Edwards will only appear on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. And nationally syndicated jock-jabber host Jim Rome is on in early afternoons.
