She's done just about every shift in our building and no one is more deserving of the opportunity to entertain Houston in afternoon drive. Chris is a soldier and a man of many talents. We worked closely together in Las Vegas, and I know him to be a fantastic writer, producer, and air talent. He has a passion for music like no one I know, and will be an enormous asset to the Houston team. We can't wait to get him in the building."
