Heidi Glaus debuts her new show “The Heidi Glaus Show with Josh Gilbert” after a short but solid run with radio legend Guy Phillips. Heidi is a former, long time reporter and host of “Show Me St. Louis” for KSDK television. Glaus is originally from the small town of New Madrid, Missouri. She attended Williams Woods University where she played softball and basketball. Following college, Glaus started working at KSDK in 1996 as an intern, then transitioned into working as a production assistant for the network after her internship ended. She had originally planned on becoming a sport reporter, having been a long-time fan and participant in basketball and softball. Glaus moved into a home in Lafayette Square in 2006.
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 co-host of The Heidi Glaus Show with Josh Gilbert after a great run 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 firstname.lastname@example.org for booking and promotion on the show.
