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:

Jack Eichel's play at the World Championships offers a glimpse into what he might look like as an NHL player. If the last few games, featuring some of the world's best players, are any indication, we should expect Eichel to be a demon of possession, and a terror on the power play.
Time for some free advice for Bills General Manager Doug Whaley. Draft a quarterback on Friday. There are a number of people who will tell you not to do this for various reasons.
1. This year's group of quarterbacks is underwhelming.
2. You already have four quarterbacks on your roster.
3. You don't have a first or fourth round pick so in rounds two
