Default Texans' Vandermeer to give up talk-show duties

Didn't know exactly where to put this. But thought some here would want to know. So mods please feel free to move.

From the Chronicle:

Quote:
Marc Vandermeer will become director of radio broadcasting for the Texans and will leave his job as KILT's (610 AM) morning drive-time anchor in late May or early June, team and station officials said Thursday.

Vandermeer, who came to Houston in 2002 as the Texans' radio play-by-play announcer and has hosted afternoon and morning drive shows on KILT, the team's flagship station, will make the move as part of the new contract that shifts advertising sales for the Texans radio network and for weekly Texans shows on KILT from CBS Radio to the team.

"It's awesome to be able to work for an NFL team and to be involved in all aspects of their radio programming," Vandermeer said. "I'm not saying goodbye to Sports Radio 610, so I will still maintain my relationships there. It's the best of everything for me."

The move was not unexpected, since most NFL teams are taking radio rights in-house. Vandermeer and Paul Allen in Minneapolis-St. Paul were the only NFL play-by-play announcers hosting daily sports talk shows.

Texans president Jamey Rootes said Vandermeer will develop team-sponsored programming in conjunction with KILT program director Gavin Spittle and will work on radio network relations and other matters for the team.

"Marc will be at the center of the creation of what we think will be the broadest platform of NFL programming on radio," Rootes said. "Our goal is to take our brand throughout the week for our fans."

Spittle said he will conduct a nationwide search for Vandermeer's morning drive replacement alongside co-host John Lopez. He said he will consider inside candidates but wants to limit changes to the station's existing lineup.

"This is a benefit to the Texans and a benefit to us," Spittle said. "One of our points of contact with the team will be a guy we love and trust in Marc. The tough part is losing a guy who has done such a great job in morning drive, but he will continue to be a huge part of the radio station."

Coincidentally, the February Arbitrons came out this week. KILT lost a full share point off its January performance, which was fueled in large part by the Texans' playoff run, but still ranked 13th among all Houston stations and first among all-sports stations among men 25-54.

KILT had a 3.4 percent share in the weeklong ratings to 1.6 for KFNC (97.5 FM), 1.1 for KBME (790 AM) and 0.2 for KGOW (1560 AM). It ranked fourth in morning drive among all stations with a 4.6 share, was 12th in middays at 3.2 and tied for seventh in afternoon drive at 4.8.

KBME's best performance was a 2.5 share for 19th place in morning drive, and KFNC was 18th in middays with a 2.2 share in men 25-54.

Good atleast his homerism will no longer be a part of the morning drive time. Rah/Rah

790 was starting to gain a larger listenership. I bet 610 didn't hate to see Vandy leave. Kinda like they weren't sorry to see Ware leave.

I mostly listen to 790, wonder if 610 will move Josh Innes to the morning drive time since they seem to think he's not the most annoying person in radio.

People tune into hear him run his mouth, and when they get angry at him, instead of just changing the dial, they sit there and foam at the mouth or call in to complain.

Quite the contrary - you could argue he's been their only net add this off-season.

Don't listen much to the 610 morning show, but I like Vandy as a play by play guy, and I think this is a great move for him. Congrats and best of luck Mark!

Now I know why he was lofting softballs to McNair recently on the afternoon program.

You know if you actually read posts in this very same thread you would find your answer. Or you could use google. But, no, 610 is the only sports radio in all of Houston.

I would love to be a radio guy there and talk Texans every day.

I think 90% of us would be better than what you guys have described of the real radio guys on here.

He and Rich Lord are the last stomachable guys on that station, and I won't listen to Lord for obvious reasons.

I truly cannot fathom how 610 does so well on ratings. I know they have reputation due to their longevity, but the quality of program is simply not comparable to 790. It's hard to believe reputation goes that far.

The only thing you're missing on 610 is the the weekly interview with the Kubiak and the star players like Andre Johnson and Matt Schaub....but none of them really ever say anything anyway. 790 and 1560 get the 2nd tier guys, but they get a lot more out of them than footballspeak.

790's probably the best of the sports stations anyway. You're not missing out on a whole lot. The only show I really ever listen to on 610 is Barry Warner because the only local thing on then.

I always thought that VDM having a show on 610 was a conflict of interests anyway. If he really believes what he says, then he's a robot. If he doesn't believe what he says, then he's not being honest.

Shame. I was really hoping we'd never have to hear the ridiculous 'Rock 'n Roll' call again.

One can but hope.
