Guy Phillips - 2006

After stints at stations in Texas, Mexico and California, Guy came to KSLQ in 1979 as part of a two-man morning show with Mike Wall.

The station’s call letters changed to KYKY, the format changed and the partnership dissolved, but Phillips stayed for over a quarter century, making his morning gig at the station one of the longest continuous stays in modern times. Near the end of his radio career he filled a slot at KTRS for a couple years. Phillips retired in 2020.

He dedicated thousands of hours in community service to charitable agencies and was one of the market’s most popular MCs. He’s received the Ronald McDonald House “Hero of the Heart” award and was named “Mr. St. Louis” through mayoral proclamation. ​
