Growing Up Catholic In Webster Groves, KMOX’s Kevin Killeen Recounts Childhood Experiences

Mar 5, 2013

Since 1995, Kevin Killeen has worked as a reporter for KMOX.  He began his career with St. Louis Public Radio | 90.7 KWMU. 

In his current role, he produces the station’s morning feature “A Whole ‘nother Story” and has written KMOX’s original holiday show for about the last 15 years.  Now, he’s written a book, “Never Hug A Nun,” a semi-autobiographical novel about his experiences growing up and going to a Catholic school in Webster Groves during the 1960s.

Many of Killeen’s characters are based on people he knew, including his parents.  While the names of many of the actual locations in the novel have been altered, people familiar with the area at that time will be able to recognize them.

Host Don Marsh spoke and reminisced with Killeen about his experiences from an earlier time.
