Landmark editor

Effective this week, The Landmark has a new columnist--and his name will be familiar to news junkies in general and talk radio listeners in particular.

Chris Stigall joins The Landmark’s stable of entertaining and opinionated contributors and will pen a weekly column to appear on page A-3. He replaces longtime columnist CK Rairden, who has stepped down after 10 years of political commentary with The Landmark.

Stigall is a rising star in the talk radio business. His show runs 5-9 a.m. each weekday on KCMO 710 AM in Kansas City. His style is one that combines conservative political viewpoints with a sense of humor, and his show is pulling strong ratings in the Kansas City radio market.

Stigall can also be heard sitting in for nationally syndicated radio show host Michael Savage when Savage is away. Stigall has also appeared as a guest many times on nationally televised political news shows to offer insight and commentary.

The opinionated political conservative is very familiar with Platte County and Kansas City’s Northland. He graduated from Oak Park High School and earned a degree in broadcasting and journalism from Northwest Missouri State University.

Stigall was the keynote speaker at the Kansas City Tax Day Tea (Taxed Enough Already) Party at Liberty Memorial, a rally against big government and runaway government spending. The event drew a crowd of 5,000 people to the lawn of the Liberty Memorial.

Last December, Stigall was a special guest at The Landmark’s annual public Christmas party event held at the Comfort Inn in Platte City. He has been a speaker on multiple occasions for area Republican organizations, including the Platte County Pachyderm Club.

In his college days, Stigall spent a summer internship with the David Letterman late night television show. He later worked as a morning DJ/host on classic rock station KCFX, and worked for a time in the office of Sixth District Congressman Sam Graves.

Stigall and his wife reside in the Northland with their three young children, ages four, three and one.
