    Matt and Adam in the AM, Charlie and Lance in the PM. On paper, I like it.

    I am surprised they are doing this after they got the no 1 morning show. JR is a real juggernaut based on their ratings.

    I'm stoked that it's Matt & Adam again, but I think Charlie and Lance are going to struggle. Charlie has been solo for a while now and Lance is more of a yukster than Charlie. If they can make it work, they'll own the airwaves. I think Lance would be happier taking Josh's place at 610, though. He and Rich seem like they'd be a good pair.

    Always thought Charlie was too much of a control freak to do a 2 man show again. But I like it. Him and Lance will pretty much kill the J&R show, which I think is the goal. I know Charlie loves interacting with callers but that formula can only sustain listeners for so long, and frankly I switched the dial sometimes just because it got monotonous.

    Sports news of the day.........no...nothing really.

    I do like Charlie a lot but I sure am sick of him saying that all the time.

    They really need to promote the HELL out of this. Aggressively.

    Like I said in the other thread, there is a significant percentage of casual sports talk listeners in Houston who have no idea that any other station besides 610 even exists. This is the (only) reason 610 will probably always dominate the drive time slot. That's when most of them are in their cars.

    When I listen to J and R, I get the feeling that Rich is just DYING to be paired up with a better co-host. But as long as the ratings and money keep flowing in, he's content to put his respect for his craft aside, just follow Josh's idiotic lead and go with the flow. You can just hear it in his voice. He's checked out and is just on cruise control.

    Thank you Lord! Now I have no reason now to flip over and listen to Josh-Whine 610. I like Charlie, but I just get tired of hearing him rant by himself. So, between that 610 having some exclusive Texans' content are the only reasons I would listen to it anymore. So glad Vandemeer is doing that stuff in the evenings.

    Love how Josh would always say, "Hey, you bit** and complain about me and yet you still listen." Well bud, I've barely listened for months and it will go to nil starting Monday.

    Haven't listened to them in a while, but I heard the same thing from Rich. He's given up. I think he would leave in a heart beat but between an assuming fat paycheck and (perhaps the more distinguishing reason) the benefits of him working with the texans...he's just on biding his time

    A couple years back, it seemed like everyone here hated Rich Lord. Funny how things change.

    Don't listen to much afternoon radio but Charlie puts me to sleep when I listen to him on the way home. I like him and respect his opinions, but it's tough to listen to sometimes. This should be good.

    I still think of Rich the same, a bland PC out of towner from the northeast who doesn't know a lot about sports (especially local sports) but is affable enough to stay around and be gainfully employed because he says the right things. His lack of sports knowledge doesn't bother me anymore, but I still remember him saying on the radio that he didn't know Hakeem was drafted before Jordan.

    The J&R show is basically a TMZ gossip style show that disguises as a sports talk show, as sports knowledge wise those 2 are amongst the weakest in the houston field.

    It'll be interesting. I feel they should at least beta test a move this big. Maybe 2 times a week at first. I definitely prefer it but there are a LOT of people out there that just want to hear Charlie. You know the ones, the people that call in to talk baseball from 1967.

    On a side note I think Matt Thomas needs a co-host. He needs to be checked. I used to like the subtle humor but now he's acting like a kid when the teacher is out of the classroom. Someone needs to put shackles on the shenanigans before it gets out of hand.

    Oh hell yeah! No reason except for the Texans to tune into 610 now.

    I get that feeling not just with Rich, but all of the hosts when it comes to Josh.

    [rQUOTEr]Matt Jackson and Adam Wexler will continue as co-hosts of KBME’s morning show. Former NFL players Greg Koch and ND Kalu are now working from 10 a.m. to noon, followed by Matt Thomas from noon to 3 p.m. The Zierlein-Pallilo tandem debuts Monday. Dylan Gwinn will work from 7 to 9 p.m., a slot that will be pre-empted frequently during NBA season as Rockets games move to KBME, but which may open the door for some Rockets postgame work for him.[/rQUOTEr]

    I just hope that this doesn't increase the chances of Charlie leaving. he is by far the best sports talk host in Houston (and one of the better in the country), and at some point you have to think he might be attracted to larger markets... hopefully getting Lance squeezed into his show doesn't speed up that attraction...

    Can't get too much larger than the Houston radio market, which is ranked sixth, IIRC. I'm sure he will stay.

    Charlie will never leave Houston. He's said a million times that he is totally content here and has turned down plenty of offers to leave.
