Doug Schmitz

Now back where it all started, Doug began his radio career with KKJO and KSFT in June 1992 after graduating from Northwest Missouri State.  The Stanberry, Mo., native served advertising clients around the St. Joseph area on KKJO and KSFT through 1999 joining Eagle Radio, owners of KFEQ & KSJQ, when Eagle purchased KKJO and KSFT from Cardinal Communications. Growing from a kid out of college to the Top 5 in Eagle’s sales department, Doug stepped away from Eagle in 2007 for another opportunity. The following year, he stepped in to serve as general manager of KAAN in Bethany, Mo., and KKWK and KMRN in Cameron, Mo.  Growing those stations on Interstate 35 through 2019, Doug returned to Eagle Radio–St. Joseph, this time serve as general manager of KESJ, KFEQ, KKJO and KSJQ.
Doug is married to his wife of 26 years, Tammie, and enjoys spending time with his family, including his daughter, Ashlea, and her fiancé, Brandon, who also reside in St. Joseph, and his son, Josh, who lives in Maryville. He enjoys going to Royals and Chiefs game. One of his biggest thrills even though the Royals lost the series to the Giants, was attending Game 7 of the 2014 World Series.  “It was absolutely electric up to the final out!”  Doug also enjoys camping and fishing, working on his lawn, and his current project — rebuilding an old red barn.
