Guy Phillips

Radio isn’t known for its stability or longevity. But after nearly 40 years, Guy Phillips is still here. Since 1979, Guy has been the cornerstone of entertainment radio in St. Louis. And now Guy will be heard in afternoon drive on The Big 550 KTRS!! Guy is a humorous, wisecracking entertainer who makes the trip from work enjoyable, with fun interviews, star guests, and a different (albeit twisted) view of local and national events. Guy graduated from New Mexico State University, where he majored in broadcast communications, and has left a legacy for future students with a scholarship in his name. He knew from the moment he stepped behind the microphone at the university’s radio and television stations that he wanted to pursue a career in entertainment. Guy remains one of the most sought-after event emcees in the bi-state. Though his schedule is packed full, Phillips lends himself to many charitable organizations and donates hundreds of hours of service throughout the metro area. Guy is married to Kim and is a dedicated father of three and three additional “bonus” kids. As an avid (obsessed) golfer, amateur photographer, avid traveler and licensed pilot, Guy is what one might consider busy. As of 2005 Guy was inducted into the Saint Louis Radio Hall of Fame, nominated by the hall’s board of directors and voted on by local media, and recently he was nominated as a member in the National Radio Hall of Fame.

Josh Gilbert

Josh joined KTRS in 2010, working early mornings on the weekends – shifts nobody else wanted to do. Five years later, he’s still doing the jobs no one wants to do, and is producing The Guy Phillips Show. While not generally a very excitable guy, his first loves lie in music, film, and anything to do with pop culture. A “Like”er of very few Facebook pages, his dislikes run in the thousands, and you can hear him complain on any number of topics, every day, as the Board Operator and self-proclaimed “voice of reason”. Email him directly at for booking and promotion on the show.
