CBS Radio Signs Guy Phillips To An Extension At KYKY/St. Louis
January 26, 2017
CBS Radio's KYKY-FM (Y98) has signed a multi-year contract extension with Guy Phillips, keeping the popular anchor of St. Louis’ highly rated The Phillips & Company Morning Show in his familiar time slot of weekdays from 5:30 – 10:00 AM. Since 1979, Phillips has been the cornerstone of morning radio at 98.1 FM in St. Louis, bringing listeners his fun guest interviews and interesting takes on local and national events.
“Guy is an institution in the St. Louis area. He continuously reinvents his show, and makes me laugh every morning on the way to the office. Hundreds of thousands of listeners have the same experience every morning. I’m thrilled he will continue to call Y98 home,” said Marty Linck, Program Director for Y98.
Phillips added, “I’ve been one of the luckiest guys to ever work in this business. I have had steady employment over five decades in St. Louis and I haven’t once failed to laugh, on the air and off, on any of those days. I work with a crew that is not only passionate about their jobs but have compassion for one another. I thank a great radio company in CBS Radio for their enduring trust and support. Most importantly, I am filled with gratitude for my listeners and this community at large who, through it all, continue to support my buffoonery.”
The Phillips & Company Morning Show on Y98 is comprised of Phillips, Courtney Landrum, Jen Myers, Kevin “the Intern,” and Lance Hildebrand.
In 2006, Phillips was among an elite class elected to the St. Louis Radio Hall of Fame, all of whom were nominated by the Hall’s board of directors and voted on by local media.
