Longtime KMOX Radio reporter Kevin Killeen has been named Managing Director of the St. Charles County Office of Communications by County Executive Steve Ehlmann. Killeen will replace Communications Director Mary Enger, who was appointed by Ehlmann in 2016, and who is retiring Aug. 24, 2023.
“Mary Enger has built a great department that has been getting the story out on the good things happening in St. Charles County,” says Ehlmann. “Kevin also understands the vision the Council and I have for the County and the part we should play in regional affairs.”
Killeen has been a general assignment reporter with KMOX since 1995, working prior in print media for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the Suburban Journals. He has extensive experience reporting on governmental and regional affairs in the St. Louis area, including St. Charles County.
“In recent years, I have taken interest in the growing population, business development and political influence of St. Charles County in the region,” Killeen says. “I look forward to helping further tell that story.”
Killeen graduated from the University of Missouri-St. Louis with a degree in Speech Communications. He and his wife, Nancy, have four grown children and their first grandchild is on the way.
