When it comes to sports talk in the morning, there is only once source in Buffalo...The Howard Simon Show!
Howard Simon graduated from Buffalo State in 1984 and has been covering the Buffalo sports scene since 1989, working at WJJL, WBEN and the Empire Sports Network before joining WGR in 2004. Howard's also a huge fan of the New York Mets and for some reason, refuses to give up his team.
Jeremy White graduated from Syracuse University in 2001 and worked during every possible time period on WGR before joining the Howard Simon Show in November of 2004. Shockingly, Jeremy likes to squeeze in talk about his Orange whenever possible during Bills' and Sabres' conversations.
There is no other radio station in Western New York that offers you the chance to sound off on your team and connect with the following guests:

Congratulations Doug Whaley on rising to the lofty status of NFL general Manager at the young age of 40. One of the many perks that comes with the job is having media and fans give you many suggestions on how to best perform. So here it goes.
When the Bills go to training camp in July, the focus on the offensive side of the ball will be squarely on the quarterback competition but the best story on offense could be what CJ Spiller does for an encore.
As you watch the NHL playoffs you may be inclined to feel like the Sabres are "far away" because they don't look like they could compete with the teams that are still playing. You'd be wrong to say that. While there is work to be done, to suggest it will take multiple years just to be competitive, is to take this team off the hook.
The Buffalo Sabres appear to be in a good position for the 2013 NHL entry draft. Click here to find out what a former NHL scout thinks about the class of prospects and who he thinks the Sabres should select.
Clearly one of Ron Rolston’s jobs is to win hockey games. However, with the Sabres talking more about the long term, and a team that can make multiple runs in the playoffs, WGR's Jeremy White says the list of goals should start and stop with a select group of players.
