Born in 1957 as 1 of 14 children to the late Mel & Norma Meiners, Terry attributes his success to a strong German Catholic work ethic-oriented childhood, which laid the foundation to his now legendary 1985 move to WHAS-Radio. Prior to WHAS, Meiners worked with Ron Clay as the co-host of “The Show With No Name,” a morning drive-time program on Louisville rock station WQMF-FM. These 2 provided edgy humor to Louisville’s airwaves,  in fact, WQMF hired Clay & Meiners away from rival station WLRS-FM, where the duo hosted the risque “Morning Sickness” show from 1981 to 1983. At WHAS-Radio, The Terry Meiners Show has aired weekday afternoons since 1985 to present. Meiners is known for broadcasting impersonations of prominent local citizens & satirical interviews of eclectic news figures, comedians, film/TV stars, & politicians. Plus, the lampooning of (U of L) Cardinals fans & of (UK) Wildcats fans is never far away! Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence (yes that one) refers to Meiners as “my 1st celebrity” friend & claims he “still makes me starstruck.” OH MY!  Meiners has received numerous awards such as:

  • Mag.’s “Best Radio Personality” award 20 times!
  • KY Monthly mag.’s & the Leo Weekly’s “Best Radio Personality”

Along with television news anchor Rachel Platt, Meiners co-hosts the WHAS Crusade for Children, the long-running annual local telethon benefiting children’s charities, as well as, emcee duties &/or promotional work for Metro United Way, the Homeless Coalition, Dare to Care Food Bank, Louisville Metro Police Fdtn., & the Yum! Brands fundraisers for World Food Program. Today, Meiners is a co-host of weekday mornings’ “Great Day Live” (news, knowledge, & nonsense) with WHAS-TV news anchor Rachel Platt.Terry has described his job as interviewing people from all walks of life and let them tell their stories. Funny I can relate to that & we are about to do just that! 

Terry has an abundantly happy life as a blended family with 2 sons named Max & Simon Meiners, both morally & ethically strong young men, he proclaims, & stepfather to his beautiful wife Mary George Meiners’ children Aidan & Grace, & if he has nothing else to do, Terry is an avid golfer, marathon runner & private pilot!
