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:
Weekly Guest Schedule:
Monday 8:00 Bills RB Fred Jackson
Tuesday 8:00 Sabres Head Coach Dan Bylsma
Wednesday 8:00 Bills CEO/President Russ Brandon
Wednesday 8:30 Mike Robitaille
Thursday 8:00 Sabres President Ted Black
Friday 8:10 Bills Head Coach Rex Ryan
Plus, Mike Robitaille will give his take on Buffalo Sabres' games at 8:30 (if they played the night before) and WGR reporter Paul Hamilton will give his take on the Buffalo sports scene every weekday as well.
It's the same reaction every time. Ask any defensive player on the Buffalo Bills about Rex Ryan and that player will have a huge smile on his face. Players were happy with the last two men to oversee the defense, Mike Pettine and Jim Schwartz,
In the Bills original master plan for EJ Manuel, he would have a firm grasp on the quarterback position entering year three in the NFL, not fighting for the starting job and perhaps even a roster spot.
