Shane Summers is Midwest through and through. Growing up in rural LaCrosse, Shane decided to take his talents to Hays, a whopping 25 miles from Lacrosse after graduating in 2002. After turning the Fort Hays State campus a buzz with his radio show “The Shane Experience” (not really, mostly just his parents and grandparents listened, true story), Shane graduated in 2008. While in college, Shane worked at KRSL Russell Radio and remembers fondly doing news reports and obituaries over the air. Shane joined Sports Radio 810 WHB in the Spring of 2010 and has done many roles since joining, even calling himself the 810 Utility Man (a radio station version of Whit Merrifield) before joining the BTL crew in the summer of 2017.
Shane has a long history of loving Kansas City sports and the heartbreak that comes along with it. He can’t hear the name Sirr Parker and not have nightmares of what almost was with the 1998 KSU Wildcats. So close. The no punt game, the field goal game, the kicker who shall not be named and now the forward progress game just get him riled up. Never in his dreams would the Royals be that one shining moment of his fandom. He also roots for the Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche as his old man was from Denver. (Don’t hate, he was a good dude!) Shane also is a nerd at heart and enjoys all things Star Wars and Batman as well as other nerdy things. He also loves music and would love to debate you on who the greatest band is (duh, the Beatles) or guitarist (anything but Hendrix is the wrong answer) or genre (90’s grunge or 70’s hard rock are too close to decide). He’s got opinions and he’ll be sure to tell you about them.
Shane has been happily married since 2010 to Samantha, and together they have two daughters, Lily, their little rally baby and Penny, their little cleanup hitter.
