A story somewhat overwhelmed by the weather unpleasantness hit today: KMOX Sports Director Ron Jacober, who's been in the STL market covering sports for 37 years and at KMOX for 20 of them, has decided to retire, at least partially. Comment here. 11-30-06God loves the Blue(tooth)Man ... I always hated those guys who blabbed on their cell phones with that little, almost-invisible earpiece and microphone. One guy I saw some years back sitting in front of the old Wilbur & Gil's at Westport was flapping his lips and waving his hands and I figured he was way overdue for his meds.
