ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - KMOX is proud to announce Amy Marxkors will be joining "The Charlie Brennan Show" on a full-time basis. 

She's been a regular guest of the show in recent months and will begin her permanent position on Monday, July 1. Charlie Brennan, who has been a featured voice on KMOX since 1988, hosts his show weekdays from 8:30 to 11 a.m.

"I'm from St. Louis, and I grew up listening to KMOX—whether it was in the car early in the morning or on summer evenings, listening to Cardinals games. I’ve always loved radio," Marxkors says. "To be joining the Charlie Brennan Show is a bit surreal. Charlie’s name, Charlie’s voice, is woven into the very fabric of this city. I’m beyond thrilled to have this opportunity to be a part of his show. It’s an incredible honor.”

KMOX Program Director Steve Moore said "while she’s only been in radio a short time, she has shown tremendous growth covering everything from the Blues run to the Stanley Cup to discussing local & national issues during our long-form talk shows.  She has a very bright future on KMOX and I’m looking forward to the impact she can make on KMOX!"

In addition, she will begin work on a weekly podcast to continue her coverage of the St. Louis Blues for KMOX. 

In 2016, Marxkors became the co-host of Chili’s Week in Hockey, the St. Louis Blues weekly hockey show on KMOX. The following year, she joined the Blues radio broadcast. On February 2, 2019, when the Blues faced off against the Columbus Blue Jackets, she became the first woman to host the pre and postgame of a radio broadcast for any St. Louis professional sports team.

She has recently made her foray into the world of political talk, making appearances on The Charlie Brennan Show, The Mark Reardon Show, the Dave Glover Show, and Donnybrook, among others.

Marxkors grew up in the rural outskirts of St. Louis, Missouri, a homeschooler before anyone knew what homeschooling was. She spent her days building forts in the woods, playing sports, and reading books by Charles Dickens. 

Melding her passion for sports with her love for writing, she passed many mornings at the Chesterfield ice rink, flagging down St. Louis Blues players to interview for The Hockey Newsletter, her self-published, 30-page, single-spaced Word document of a periodical that she delivered monthly to local business leaders and to the players themselves, often against their will. While still in high school, she wrote for Missouri and Illinois hockey publications as well as the St. Louis Bandits of the North American Hockey League.

In 2007, she began working at Fleet Feet Sports. It was during her tenure at Fleet Feet that she fell headfirst into the world of distance running. She has since run 18 marathons, including the Boston Marathon, and has written two books on endurance sport: The Lola Papers (2012), named one of Competitor magazine’s must-read running books of the year, and Powered By Hope: The Teri Griege Story (2014). Her work has appeared in the Washington Post, Competitor, Terrain, Ultrarunning Magazine, and more. Throughout her time writing, she also taught high school students in various capacities, from tutoring to teaching AP English Literature and Honors Writing.
