Long-time St. Louis Cardinals broadcaster, Mike Shannon, has signed a contract extension with the team. 2014 will be Shannon’s 56th season with the organization. He has spent 42 of those years as a well-known broadcaster. Cardinal fans appreciate Shannon as he isn’t just a former player, he is actually from the city of St. Louis. He also attended the University of Missouri for a year after signing a contract with the redbirds back in 1958. Mike became part of the Cardinals’ promotional staff in 1971 and a year later he moved to the radio booth. He and the famous Jack Buck were paired together to do color commentary on KMOX for almost three decades. In 1985 Shannon was awarded for his work with the St. Louis Cardinals as he received a prestigious Emmy. He was also inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame in 1999. On top of his radio efforts, Shannon has opened a restaurant under his name just one block north of Busch stadium where he hosts a sports chat show on Saturday nights after birds games.
