Sam Muchnick

By Ben Simon

Legendary St. Louis Wrestling Club promoter Sam Muchnick will be posthumously inducted into the Television wing of the St. Louis Media Hall of Fame.  Muchnick’s Hall of Fame bio reads:

A phenomenal showman, promoter and broadcaster, Sam Muchnick was a staple in the sports scene here spanning seven decades. A native Ukrainian, he moved with his family to St. Louis in 1911. In 1926, he joined the St. Louis Times, where he covered the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team while developing many influential acquaintances, including Babe Ruth and Al Capone. Muchnick also covered professional wrestling, and in 1932, when the Times merged with the St. Louis Star, he began his career as a long-time sports promoter. His TV series, “Wrestling at the Chase,” aired on KPLR-TV from May 1959 through September 1983.

The St. Louis Media History Foundation will induct the new members March 16 at the St. Louis City Center Hotel, 400 South 14th Street. The event is open to the public.

Previous inductees from Saint Louis’s wrestling history include Joe Garagiola, George Abel, and Harold Koplar.
