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:

Kingston foward Sam Bennett rates #1 in NHL Central Scouting's mid-term report. While it's no lock he stays there, it's a safe bet he'll go right at the top of the NHL Entry Draft. Should the Sabres be targeting him? Jeremy White has the report in this Hockey Prospect Watch.
Sam Reinhart is expected to be one of the top picks in the 2014 NHL draft and he's tearing it up in the Western Hockey League this season.
Hear what the GM of Reinhart's junior team told WGR about the young center's NHL prospects.
I've always felt there's a very special relationship between sports fans and the announcers that broadcast the games of their favorite teams. They are like members of our family. Mets fans lost a family member this past week.
