    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!

    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.

    And CBS have stopped streaming stations outside of the US. Which is a pain as I use to listen to 610 and KILT Country

    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.
