The Mizzou Tiger’s football team accepted an invitation to play in the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl. The bowl game, which began in 1947 as the Tangerine Bowl, hosted the 10-3 and 16th-ranked Tigers against the 25th-ranked Minnesota Golden Gophers (8-4) on New Years Day in Orlando, Florida. Kickoff began at 12pm central time, and was aired on The Big 550 KTRS. Mizzou beat the Minnesota Gophers 33-17 to win the Citrus Bowl.
Thanks to AD Lift Truck and numerous other sponsors, KTRS was able to host their first ever Home for the Holidays. With the help of Salvation Army, KTRS was put into contact with two Army Veterans and their families this past holiday season. Both families received a Christmas tree, lighting and ornaments for the tree, gift certificates, an ice skating outing, and more!

Personality of the Month
John Carney's commitment to a career in radio came on the heels of advice from his father, the late Jack Carney, who told him not to do it. As a professional defiant, young John knew what he had to do. It was on his twenty-first birthday that he celebrated his first day on the radio as the host of an afternoon country music show just outside of Denver. That first gig lasted only three months, but John says it was still a positive experience. “I really got to be a fast packer!”
