Longtime St. Louis radio sports-talker Charlie “Tuna” Edwards, a pioneering black broadcaster who never shies away from giving his take on racial issues in sports — or society in general — is on the move.
Edwards now is working the 6-8 p.m. shift at KXFN (1380 AM) Mondays through Thursdays. He is paired with Robert “Moses” Knighten, who had several stints at now-off-the-air station KFNS (590) after winning a contest and has worked with Edwards before.
Edwards, who had been on the midday shift at 1380 with Howard Balzer, now is back in a lead spot.
“There’s no black sports shows in the market like this,’’ Edwards said. “We talk about everything — the Confederate flag (controversy) this week. But we keep it professional — I still have great advertisers.”
