Chris Baker off 950 KPRC schedule, new show times (1/3/2011)

950 KPRC-AM Chris Baker listeners are writing me asking me where the radio talk show host is. I'm told Dennis Miller's show has taken his 1 to 3pm slot currently (Chris Baker is still on 950 KPRC's website staff listing though.)

I thought Baker might be taking time off for Thanksgiving but some listeners don't buy that. They think he is gone again.

Since the station is on Facebook, listeners now can post publicly on its wall demanding answers. Monday the station posted a message on Facebook in response, "Sorry for the late response everybody. Chris Baker is taking some personal time off. He hopes to be back on the air soon. -RR."

I emailed Clear Channel Houston AM manager Bryan Erickson and Chris Baker last week and still have received no response.

As I posted in the past, after leaving Houston a few years ago, Baker took a job at KTLK-FM Minneapolis. He's been doing mornings there and remote broadcasting to Houston once he came back to KPRC.

  3. Do be honest, I'm glad he's gone. Baker is whiny, arrogant, loud mouth. And personally, I think it sucks that he's been deceiving Houston by doing remote broadcast from Minn. What a phony.

  6. He's off the roster now for the new year. No explanation by his replacement. KPRC handled it badly. Nothing left on that station except Savage.

  9. It still says Michael Berry is on 740 from 5 to 7 on the KTRH website. Did this just change and the station hasn't updated the site yet?

  11. I have only heard Michael Berry on 740 from 5-7 and on 950 - either 2-5 or 3-5. That man is on way too much. I do miss Chris - sure he could be over the top but he was also funny. I didn't take everything he said to heart.

  13. Chris Baker is coming to KSEV 750 AM in some capacity, just not sure what. The show "Three Amigos" was talking about it today. Can't wait to here Chris again! Even if it's only part-time.
