This Just In – Josh Innes Still Sucks (cont.)

Red’s opinion of sports talk radio buffoon Josh Innes is rather well-known to long-time readers by now.  KBME – AM 790 in Houston pushed out the knowledgeable and well-liked Charlie Pallilo two years ago and brought in the obnoxious and uniformed Innes as a replacement after he was drummed out of the Philadelphia market.

Every once in a while, Red may push the wrong button and end up listening to a few seconds of Innes’ inane blather.  It happened last week, just as Innes was heaping praise on Donald Trump and guaranteeing that the Insult Comic President will win a second 4-year term because everyone is piling on him and that makes Innes want to support him.

Red has to thank the blubberous Innes because for the first time in a long time, Red has some hope.  If Innes thinks Trump is a shoo-in for another term, then the likelihood of that happening has gone way down.  Innes should stick to talking about other subjects of which he is ignorant – like Sports for example.

Astros Success is Boosting KBME Ratings – Even Pitiful Josh Innes

Red has been on the “Bash Josh Innes” bandwagon from the get-go.  But even he has to acknowledge when the sports talk listeners have gravitated up the dial to his pathetic excuse for a radio show.  The latest ratings show a marked up-tick across the board for the Houston Astros flagship station KBME AM-790.    When Josh Innes moves to third-place, larger forces are at work.  Also notable is the jump for “In the Trenches” with N.D. Kalu and Greg Koch from last place to a number 4 spot.  One can only speculate, but the best guess is that the flaming hot Astros have reinvigorated the ratings for the station.  Poor Charlie Pallilo must still be wondering what he did wrong – other than actually know something about sports.

Red has to admit that the popularity of some shows continues to perplex him.  Red would rather be staked to an anthill while dying of thirst in the desert than have to listen to Rich Lord, Sean Pendergast and Ted Johnson for more than one segment.  But apparently, Red is out of touch with the sports-talk public at large.  Here are the latest positions with the caveat that very little separates the top and bottom rated shows.  There is a 1.3 share point difference between first and last place and only 0.4 points separating the middle eight shows.
