The Creve Coeur-based station is hosting a tryout competition which began Tuesday.
If you've always wanted to put your armchair quarterbacking skills to the test behind a microphone, there could be a weekend gig for you at 101 ESPN. The station launched a competition called Sportscaster Factor Tuesday night. D'Marco Farr, an afternoon co-host on the Creve Coeur station's program The Fast Lane, appeared on FOX2 News Tuesday morning with host Tim Ezell to talk about the contest.

For the fourth year in a row, the Missouri Department of Transportation is sponsoring its "Battle of the Belt" contest, inviting students around Missouri to produce a 30-second commercial promoting seat belt use.
