(September 23, 2016) Scott Lunte aspires to broadcast marquee events like Super Bowls, NBA Finals, Olympics and golf majors. He’s counting on his new job being the first step in that direction. An STAA member, Lunte is joining the news and sports staff at KRES Radio in Moberly, MO.
“My primary responsibilities will be a play-by-play talent for KRES covering much of Northern Missouri high school sports and select collegiate events such as D-II Truman State and Central Methodist University,” says Lunte. He will also host coaches shows, other sports shows and cover news stories when necessary.
“A small market radio station means I will have lots of responsibilities, and not just calling games on Friday nights,” Lunte smiles.
Lunte is the sixth STAA member hired by the KRES in recent years. “I have had good success with STAA clients,” GM Brad Boyer has said. “While they come excited about the play-by-play opportunities we offer, they also embrace our local community radio concept and leave as more well rounded announcers.”
A 2016 graduate of Webster University near St. Louis, Lunte joined STAA in July. Two days later, he interviewed with Boyer after having been referred by STAA.
“Every college kid needs to start somewhere post-graduation. KRES is giving me a great opportunity to develop myself as a play-by-play talent and also as a journalist,” says Lunte. “I feel like this station will give me the best chance to eventually move onto something bigger in life.
