KGOW – AM 1560 announced that Radio Sports God Charlie Pallilo will be returning to the airwaves just in time for football season. Pallilo’s new show will debut on Monday August 21 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. While that is not a coveted time spot, it will be good to have the knowledgeable and largely congenial host back. Sweet justice would have had him facing off with fathead Josh Innes in morning drive time, but Red guesses Charlie doesn’t want to get up that early.
CP had been on Houston radio more or less continually since 1989 until his abrupt firing in October when he was replaced by the bumbling know-nothing Innes – a move which initially sank KBME AM 790’s ratings. The station has been boosted of late by the success of the Astros.
Gow Media reports that Pallilo will contribute to its CultureMap website and its SportsMap site scheduled to launch this year and will at some point contribute in some fashion to the company’s SB Nation Radio Network.
KGOW has been off Red’s radio listening radar since it ditched The Steve Czaban Show. That show had some issues, but was worth listening to if only for the occasional appearance of Evil Jack. Red simply cannot stomach smarmy radio fascist Dan Patrick.
But Red digresses. Congratulation are in order to Charlie for finding another radio home in Houston and to fans who will once again be treated to the finest sports talk radio show host this city has ever know.
