Bob Ramsey Named Morning Co-Host At 101 ESPN Radio

101 ESPN technically went outside the family in hiring a new co-host to go along with Zach McCrite. The station announced Thursday afternoon that Bob Ramsey, a station veteran who had been in an 6 p.m. timeslot for the past year before his contract had reportedly expired recently, would be paired with McCrite, starting February 11 in the 9 a.m.-11 a.m. period.

The station had used a variety of guest co-hosts since former Rams coach Rick Venturi left a full-time perch to tend to a hip replacement and spend more time with family. That group included Ramsey, who talked to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch about the chemistry he had built with McCrite.

Program Director Kent Sterling tweeted Thursday night "Really happy that Bob Ramsey will be the new cohost for  @BigEZ on  @101espn They are very good together. Each makes the other better"

Ramsey has remained as the voice of St. Louis Billiken Men's Basketball, which also airs on the station. Ramsey is a Pattonville High School graduate.
