Eagle Radio in St. Joseph, in conjunction with Missouri Western Athletics, has announced that KFEQ sports director Tommy Rezac will become the next voice of Missouri Western State University Athletics on the Griffon Sports Network (680 AM, 95.3 FM).
Rezac succeeds longtime voice of the Griffons Dave Riggert, who recently became the radio voice of James Madison University Athletics in Harrisonburg, Va.
“I’m extremely thrilled and honored to be taking over as the radio voice of Missouri Western Athletics,” Rezac said. “It has long been my career goal to become the radio voice of an NCAA program, and I am blessed to be working with so many amazing people at Missouri Western and Eagle Radio.
“That said, I know I have large shoes to fill. Dave is an amazing talent and he gave this role so much passion and dedication over the years. While I’m still fairly new here and am learning some new names and faces, I promise to give this job the amount of excitement, passion, respect and dedication it deserves. I do not take this lightly, and I am humbled to start this journey!”
Rezac has worked as the sports director at 680 KFEQ, St.JosephPost.com and Eagle Radio since December 2020. In that time, he has largely covered area high school sports, but has also covered Missouri Western, Northwest Missouri State, Chiefs Training Camp and other local news and sports stories. He also anchors the morning sportscasts, as well as afternoon news and sports on KFEQ.
“I’ve loved it here in St. Joseph,” Rezac said. “The people have been very welcoming, and this community has a lot to offer. It’s nice being only two hours from where I grew up, but in less than nine months of living in St. Joseph, it absolutely feels like home, and it’s the people who have made it that way for me. I’ve already met so many great people at Missouri Western, and I’m thrilled that this role will give me the opportunity to get to know many more coaches, athletes, administrators, alums and fans!”
Rezac has won multiple awards for his sports reporting, including first place in radio sports reporting from the Missouri Broadcasters Association this past year for a story he did on Mid-Buchanan’s run to state wrestling.
He is a 2017 graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where he majored in broadcast journalism with an emphasis in sports communications.
The youngest of four siblings, Rezac is a native of Valparaiso, NE. He lives in St. Joseph with his dog, Milo.
They are both diehard Husker fans as well.
