Join KTRS Sports Director Brendan Wiese and soccer veteran Mark Moser as they talk all things soccer in St. Louis. Whether it’s CITY, college, or local clubs, The Big 550 is your home for Soccer in St. Louis.
In 2001, Brendan Wiese began his professional radio career as an intern in the KTRS sports department. He worked under Jim Heuer and Jim Holder among others, and reunited with them both as colleagues in 2016.
Brendan began his on-air professional career in 2004 when he joined KRMS Radio at the Lake of the Ozarks. He has been the voice of Camdenton Laker football since 2006, and the TV/Radio voice for the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout, Lake Race, and OPA Championship Powerboat races since 2010. In addition to many broadcasting duties, Brendan has been the P.A. voice for UMSL athletics since 2014.
The St. Louis native graduated from CBC followed by Lindenwood University.
In his spare time, Brendan usually tries — and fails terribly — at golf. He attempts to quote Seinfeld, Arrested Development, and Ghostbusters whenever the situation calls for it, and even when it doesn’t. He is also an ardent supporter/player of Daily Fantasy Sports.
On the air and off, Brendan can talk baseball for hours upon hours. He believes that March Madness is the greatest sporting event of all time. And for some reason, he roots vigorously for Northwestern Football.
