Local radio sportscaster, Steve Runge has been named as the stadium announcer of the Missouri Monsters indoor football team.
“Steve has been the go-to guy for the last 9 years in the realm of local football at every level, said Justin Madden, general manager of the Missouri Monsters. “From little league, to high school, to semi pro, Steve is the one guy that is known for bringing the crowd to their feet.”
Runge’s experience includes more than 350 combined games announced for the Gateway Football League, the Pop Warner Football League, and the Great Midwest Football League. He is the sports director for 1280 AM KYRO and is their play-by-play guy for football and basketball in the Gateway Athletic Conference (South).

“I am very excited and look forward to delivering the best game day experience possible to Monster football fans,” Runge said.
