Tuna Moves To 1380 In St. Louis

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.

Knighten and Palmer Alexander host the show on Fridays. Alexander also appears at some other times, too.

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.”
