Noon-5:00 pm Ken Cocker….always thought he was going to be a baseball player, drafted out of high school, he played in the Boston Red Sox organization for two years before getting injured. His dad told him not to come home without a job, so he went to work for the local radio station broadcasting games in little Sumter South Carolina. From there he moved up to stations in Charleston and Savannah. Then to Indianapolis and from there nearly four decades in Chicago with a short interlude doing mornings in Minneapolis. Ken is now waking up Waco and Central Texas, weekday mornings on Kicker Country!
