    I heard that too. Finally made it official. Also heard plenty of "SPORTS ANIMAL" commercials. I think 610 is in for a battle.

    Who is Charlie Pallilo and why does everyone on the BBS always talk about him?

    I have no idea. I'm still trying to figure out the password to the Styx forum.

    Charlie Palillo is a Houston-area sports radio talk show host. He and Rich Lord have teamed as one of Houston's longest-running and most well-respected duos for many years. They were originally on AM news radio KTRH's "Sportsbeat" before Palillo moved to AM sports radio KILT 610's afternoon sports show. He recently decided to move to a new sports channel being put together by Clear Channel Communications who also owns KTRH.

    Rich is still at KILT and will be at least until his contract expires in March. There is speculation he may join Palillo at the new station (790 AM) at that time, but no one knows for sure.

    Other way around. Rich Lord joined 610 in 1995. Charlie Pallilo did not come over until 1999.

    Palillo should dump that dead weight Lord even if he wants to come over. Yeah, the loutish oaf makes Charlies seem all the better, but there's only bittersweet pleasure in stealing candy from a special ed kid.

    Oh, how I will miss his Caddyshack resets, his bike shorts reports, his overweening use of the the filler "well," and "let's face it". Not. Hello...Charlie!

    Funny thing is, Rich Lord seems so much better now w/ David... and back when he was with Kenny Hand.

    So.... how bad are those two then???

    Pallilo's move to KBME to make KTRH pit stop

    By DAVID BARRON
    Copyright 2004 Houston Chronicle

    Charlie Pallilo is back on the air at KTRH (740 AM), where he will co-anchor SportsBeat until Clear Channel Houston launches its all-sports format on KBME (790 AM) in late December or early January.

    Pallilo returned to KTRH, where he worked for more than a decade before joining KILT (610 AM) in September 1999, on Wednesday night. He will remain on KTRH, working with Carl Dukes and Ted DeLuca, until KBME launches, then will work afternoon drive from 3 to 7 p.m. on the rebranded ESPN 790, the "Sports Animal."

    "It will be an exciting, challenging enterprise, going from one good company (Infinity Broadcasting, owner of KILT) to another (Clear Channel) that has established its ability to build a good station," Pallilo said. "Having ESPN as the anchor network will open up some possibilities and elements that you can build into a show over time.

    "And sometimes, change is a part of life."

    The last comment was a reference, in part, to the end of his on-air partnership with Rich Lord. The two worked together at KTRH in the early 1990s and shared the mike for five years on KILT's afternoon drive show.

    "We had a great time doing that show together, and I would have no problem ever working with him and other people (at KILT) again," Pallilo said. "I just had to make a decision and decided to take on the challenge of being part of something from square one."

    Lord said he and Pallilo "enjoyed a chemistry that's hard to find. The time we worked together is always going to be special to me."

    Pallilo, whose contract at KILT expired in September, received an offer from Clear Channel late last month. Infinity had 20 days to match the offer and took Pallilo off the air during that time.

    When the 20-day period expired earlier this week, Ken Charles, Clear Channel Houston's director of AM programming, rushed him onto KTRH rather than waiting for KBME's all-sports debut.

    "He's the best sports talk host in town," Charles said. "And if we're going to launch this station, we want to launch with the best. We will have ESPN Radio, Fox Sports Radio, Dan Patrick and we wanted Charlie.

    "This is a great opportunity to launch something from scratch and to be the local star that launches it. Clear Channel has proved to be a great company that understands and nurtures talent, and I think we have an attractive opportunity here."

    Charles said KBME will launch its all-sports format as soon as KILT drops its affiliation with ESPN Radio, which should happen in the next few weeks.

    "It doesn't make sense to launch until we have everything," he said. "We want to launch with Charlie, with Dan Patrick live and with Fox Sports Radio. We've got two of the three, and now we're waiting for the third.

    "Every day they (at KILT) run Dan Patrick and ESPN, they're promoting me, so there are some benefits to them holding on."

    I have been fighting to execute our plan for 5 weeks. Yes, I am frustrated to say the least.

    I wish Charlie the best, sincerely. I am just ready to move on. and I have been pushing to dump DP for close to a year. They can have that piece of crap show.

    This is code for "Ken Charles told me that Clear Channel will eventually get me into syndication on ESPN Radio." Personally, I wouldn't believe that, but I understand the move for Palillo if he thinks this to be true.

    The fact that Dan Patrick will remain on the air in Houston makes me not want to listen. :)
