Josh Innes is back...
Just posted on facebook, starting Monday on ESPN 97.5 in Houston.

2-4 PM daily, station is currently airing the first two hours of the Will Cain show in that spot. I'm guessing Will's show is ending soon with his departure to Fox?

Working for peanuts if not free for a few months. It's tight for all radio right now and Josh can bring some revenue that Barry and Raheel couldn't. I won't be listening but I understand it from a business side why AJ is giving him a shot.

Josh is entertaining most of the time. He's not an expert of anything, but he's entertaining.

When he is himself, he is enjoyable.

When he tries to be funny, he is awful.

When he tries to be controversial, he is unbearable.

How about CP and Braddock? I'm sure they love it.

Does he have a "himself" mode? All he did here was pretend to be a wacky comedy guy and pretend to know anything about sports. He needs to be on a morning zoo crew in Des Moines.

Is this the guy who’s dad was one time the voice of scooby doo for a straight to VHS movie that sold like 400 copies?

Let’s see how long it takes him to complete the trifecta of getting fired from his 3rd Houston sports radio station.

Nowhere else to go in Houston after this. 97.5 is his last stop.

Or how long it takes for him to mention his dad. I'm taking 15 minutes.

Are we down to 3? I remember when we had 4 or 5 sports stations here so you could flip back and forth for all kinds of super hot takes on Texans draft picks. Man, I don't know what Rick Smith was thinking either, dude.

It won't work if he is solo

He needs to be a #2 to a strong host

Since when?

Listening to Innes talk about sports is unbearable. I can only imagine listening to him talk about not sports right now.

Not entirely true. At least I hope you don't mean having his gf Jillie with him. I hope this is not the case.

He was #1 on 790 when he was let go.

He was pulling in 5 shares with 610 (yes with a partner + Texans flagship)

97.5 just hired a guy who pulled in 5 shares to work for absolutely free + bring in sponsors. The radio market is hurting bad right now. This hire is a grand slam business decision for them whether we as TD posters/Louisiana board like him or not.

All this said, I don't like the guy but will probably tune in day 1 to hear if he's learned anything. He is essentially betting on himself.
