How does one even begin to sum up the political year that was 2016? On Thursday’s St. Louis on the Air, we tried.

The trio discussed the “red wave” that came over Missouri on Nov. 8, Missouri Governor-Elect Eric Greiten’s rise, and the legacy of Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, among other issues. They also looked at how political decisions made in 2016 will impact 2017 and beyond:
