Randy Karraker

You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who knows more about St. Louis sports, or sports in general, than Randy Karraker. Randy has been part of the St. Louis sports media for more than two decades, but his super-fandom started years before as an usher for both the Cardinals and Blues.

“My favorite sports moment was the first NFL playoff game played in St. Louis, when the Rams scored on their first offensive play against Minnesota, a 77-yard touchdown pass from Kurt Warner to Isaac Bruce,” Randy says. “That’s followed closely by Mark McGwire’s 62nd home run on September 8, 1998 against the Cubs.”

Randy’s also involved in several St. Louis charities, including his annual golf tournament benefiting Every Child’s Hope. You can hear him holding court on Karraker & Smallmon every day from 7-10 a.m. on 101 ESPN.

Michelle Smallmon

Belleville native and a lifelong passionate St. Louis sports fan, we are glad to have Michelle Smallmon back on our St. Louis 101ESPN team! Most recently Michelle was Producer of Bernie Miklasz’s show weekday mornings. Before Michelle returned to St. Louis in 2018 she was located at the ESPN National Headquarters & Studios in Bristol, CT. During her time at ESPN Headquarters she was Producer of the successful “Ryen Rusillo Show” on the ESPN radio network as well as Producer for the weekday evening radio show called “Jorge & Jen”. Michelle’s work and on-air presence earned acclaim for cultivating popular podcasts and video segments for ESPN’s national site.

Prior to her experience at ESPN’s headquarters, Michelle spent four years with 101ESPN in St. Louis from (2009-2015), where she produced and did some on-air work with Miklasz on the “The Bernie Miklasz Show” and “The Fast Lane” with veteran broadcaster Randy Karraker, former St. Louis Rams player D’Marco Farr and former St. Louis Cardinals Pitcher Brad Thompson.

Michelle is happy to be back on the St. Louis airwaves with 101 ESPN. In her own words, “I’m so thrilled to be reunited with my 101ESPN family. Getting the opportunity to work at ESPN in Bristol was a dream come true, and I’m so grateful for my time there and to all the amazing people I met at the network. But St. Louis is my home, and it feels great to be back in the community that means so much to me.”
