The Morning Show with Diane Jones, featuring "Off the Cuff"

You can catch Diane on the KLPW-AM All Talk 1220 Morning Show from 8:15 to 10 weekday mornings. Wake up to her daily commentary on Off the Cuff: The Radio Edition, a 10-minute take on just about anything and everything, weekdays at 6:47 a.m. and 5:18 p.m. Selected Off the Cuffs are available on demand online. It’s a Midwestern mom’s no-nonsense viewpoint from the “other” Washington.

From the moment she spoke her first word, Diane has been outspoken about what she thinks. What landed her in the principal’s office back in grade school ended up spawning a radio career in her 40’s. Whether the events are going on in Washington, DC or Washington, MO, Diane stays on top of the facts to make sure hers is an informed opinion. An open-minded politically independent conservative, she welcomes healthy debate and believes civility in such debate is sorely lacking on the airwaves and in this country.

A 1984 Notre Dame business administration graduate, Diane wears many hats—on-air host, manager, reluctant techie, sales--and has a wide variety of interests ranging from being a political junkie to being a die-hard, never-say-never Irish football fan, and everything in between. Her favorite hat, far and away, has been and always will be being a mom. Her first listener was her husband, who has encouraged and supported her radio career from day one.

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

1 day 10 hours ago

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Union Post 297 Senior American Legion Baseball Player Trey Fink. Earlier this season in a game against St. Peters, Trey pitched a complete game with 11 strike outs and no walks in an 8-1 win. He also went the distance in a tough luck 6-1 loss to Washington. He only gave up four hits with 13 strike outs and one walk. Time and again, Trey has proven his ability to go deep into games.

Over the course of the past 16 years doing commentary on air and in print, there have sadly been many mass shootings and many predictable politicized reactions.

The shootings at Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, however, stands out for two main reasons.

It involved race, and it was done it a church.
