In 1972, author Calvin Trillin wrote in the New Yorker that four of his top five restaurants were located in Kansas City. Similarly, sports radio is often a local delicacy. And the best sports-radio host in the country resides in Kansas City. Soren Petro, who hosts WHB 810's 11 a.m.-2 p.m. slot, understands the games and their off-the-field transactions, leaving listeners informed and entertained in the process. He also does not engage in the lazy demagoguery practiced by other national and local sports hosts (e.g., "Someone needs to speak for the fans").
