Gold returns to Kansas City to talk sports in his hometown

(January 10, 2020) Alex Gold is now a sports talk host for the station at which he once interned. An STAA member, Gold has joined 610 Sports in Kansas City as mid-day co-host alongside Cody Tapp.

Gold is from nearby Overland Park and is a 2013 graduate of the University of Kansas.

It was during his junior year at KU that Gold joined 610 Sports as an intern. Over the next 20 months, he worked his way up to board-op, producer, update anchor and fill-in host.

After graduating college, Gold moved to Wichita for a sports talk/sales position. Just over one year later, it was onto Afternoon Drive at 580 WIBW in the Kansas capitol city of Topeka. During that time, Gold also reported on the Royals, Chiefs, KU Jayhawks and the Kansas State Wildcats.

In 2016, ESPN Boise chose Gold to co-host Afternoon Drive and host the Boise State football postgame show. When the station flipped formats in 2018, Gold was onto SB Nation Radio Network in Houston. “The Gold Standard” aired weeknights on affiliates in markets including Houston, Dallas, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Oklahoma City and, ironically, Kansas City.

Gold has been an STAA member since 2011.
