St. Louis Cardinals Radio Network

The Cardinals Radio Network is a United States radio network broadcasting St. Louis Cardinals baseball. The network consists of 111 stations (52 AM, 59 FM) and six FM translators in nine states (four in the Midwest, five in the South). Its flagship station is KMOX in St. Louis. Due to an earlier deal with KTRS/550, it is still a partial owner of that station although Cardinals games no longer air on KTRS (which they did for the 2006-2010 seasons).

Games are called by former Cardinals right fielder Mike Shannon, who in 2014 is working his 43rd season with the Cardinals Radio Network. Alongside Shannon is nine-year veteran John Rooney, who also spent 17 seasons broadcasting for the Chicago White Sox, while Mike Claiborne hosts the pre- and post-game shows and occasionally fills in on play-by-play. Former pitchers Rick Horton and Al Hrabosky, who primarily serve as analysts for Cardinals telecasts on Fox Sports Midwest, also fill in for Shannon on select radio broadcasts.
