Nick Kunels

Born and raised in Savannah, Mo., Nick is a proud 1985 graduate of Savannah High School.  He then attended Northwest Missouri State University and earned a bachelor’s degree in broadcasting, leading to his first radio job at KCFM 107.3FM in Kansas City. After a year in Kansas City and a month in Clinton, Mo., he returned to St. Joseph and took a position at KKJO/KSFT. He spent five years on the sales staff and eight years as the sales manager for Cardinal Communications and Eagle Radio. His next venture in 2003 was at Entercom in Kansas City on the sales staff of KQRC/KRBZ. After 10 years, he took his first non-radio position at Kansas Speedway as the corporate sales director for the Richard Petty Driving Experience.

“Yes…I got to drive a race car and I recommend everyone do it at least once,” he said.

After three years out of radio, he decided his radio break was over, taking a position with Sports Radio 810 WHB before rejoining Eagle Radio-St. Joseph in December 2018.

“My wife and I recently celebrated out 25th wedding anniversary and have two kids in college. I have son at Kansas State and a daughter at Missouri Western State University,” he said. “My only real hobby is playing guitar — unless you count watching sports a hobby. I do enjoy fishing at my mother-in-law’s farm. If I catch something, great. If not, it’s still an enjoyable afternoon.”
