John McCormick, Legacy HOF Inductee

John McCormick John McCormick became known in St. Louis as "The Man Who Walks and Talks at Midnight." His overnight program on KMOX was a throwback to radio's earlier days, when deep-voiced announcers steeped in knowledge and personality held forth on the nation's powerhouse stations. McCormick began his work at KMOX in 1958, having already established himself as a radio personality at Chicago's WGN and WBBM and stations in New Orleans and Los Angeles. He held forth on the KMOX overnight shift for 31 years, with listeners awaiting his familiar clich├ęs, like his sign-off at the end of each morning's show: "And now, the night has separated from the day." Like many KMOX personalities, McCormick stayed on the air past the usual retirement age of 65, finally hanging it up at 75.

The list of announcers who have broadcast the games on the station's "50,000 red-hot watts," as former KMOX announcer John McCormick used to say, is just as legendary to Cardinals fans as are the team's most revered players.
