Saturday Sports: 'The Legends Series'

Mar 8, 2017

Each Saturday morning Darren Hellwege hosts Thinking Out Loud: Saturday Sports. The program covers University of Missouri athletics.

This year we began a new program, “The Legends Series.” We did long-form interviews with historical figures from Mizzou athletics. We talked with long-time coaches, former players, and an author who’s writing a book on the 1960 Mizzou football team.

Host Darren Hellwege is the Sports Director for KBIA-FM in Columbia, Missouri. He has been with the station since 1987, and is the local host for Morning Edition.  In addition to his work with KBIA, he is Public Address announcer for Mizzou wrestling. He has appeared on ESPN’s Outside the Lines and had a report from the Women’s NCAA basketball Final Four air on NPR’s Morning Edition.
