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 ? http://www.chron.com/sports/article/Josh-Innes-returning-to-Houston-sports-radio-9615704.php
Since coming back to Houston, Josh Innes has seen the ratings of his afternoon drive show on KMBE (790 AM): according to the Houston Chronicle, they reported the afternoon host has seen a noticeable audience uptick in the February book, posting the first month-to-month increase of his tenure there. Innes currently remains 3rd in the time slot among sports stations, & he will require at least 4 more months of comparable growth to gain back what KMBE had lost in that time slot since his arrival, but anything's possible. http://www.chron.com/sports/article/Josh-Innes-radio-ratings-increase-in-February-11020426.php Thoughts on Innes' afternoon drive show's ratings & audience increase ?
