In the aftermath of Josh Innes joining KMBE 790-AM & returning to Houston, the iHeart Media station had to let go of longtime radio host Charlie Pallilo in order to make way for Innes in the rating-crucial afternoon drive spot.

 

Pallilo's status was not addressed in a company statement announcing Innes' hire to work the 3:00pm-7:00pm afternoon shift & station officials refused to return phone calls seeking comment om Monday. However, Pallilo's name & blog both were removed from the KMBE website & he told colleagues that he was no longer with the iHeart Media station.

 

Innes will be paired with former KILT-AM Sports Radio 610 producer, Jim Mudd on KMBE 790 AM for the 3:00pm-7:00pm afternoon drive slot beginning on Monday, October 10th!

 

Plus, Innes' show will be airing against the KILT afternoon drive show, "The Triple Threat" co-hosted by Rich Lord, with whom he had a very ugly, contentious relationship with during his 4 years at KILT. This sets up to being what could be one of the most contentious, nastiest, potentially entertaining ratings & programing face-offs in the history of Houston sports radio.

 

Any thoughts on Innes joining 790-AM & how he'll do competing against his former colleagues at KILT-AM Sports Radio 610 ?

Horrible decision.  Pallilo was the best in Houston, Innes has been fired like 3 times in a year.  He is an extremely poor man's Skip Bayless.  That's sad.

Innes might make for a good political talk show host like Hannity because he's controversial but he know's nothing about sports, especially compared to Pallilo.

He was only fired from Philly, be fair.

someone would have to be fired. they have a lot of hosts. 2 for the first show, 3 for the next and 3 after that. I can't really imagine how he'd fit in.

Josh is an angry man, not what I want to listen to after a long day of work. I might not vote Charlie into the HOF for his personality, but his knowledge and insight of Pro sports was easy listening...................not the anger and smut Innes brings to the air................Back to the triple threat!

I can totally understand people not liking Josh innes, but I literally can not listen to the triple threat.  If that show was on any other station but 610 it would crash and burn.

Per Ken Hoffman on twitter a few weeks back, Charlie is going to be on 1560

 

Strange though that the Chronicle hasn't ran a story on it yet.

I agree with you there Lockmat. Surprised neither the Houston Chronicle or McGuff Blog even mentioned this at all.
