Former KHOU 11 traffic guy Darby Douglas is now on a bunch of radio stations

When former KHOU 11 traffic guy Darby Douglas was forced to take an exit lane from the station in 2009, lots of Houston commuters were outraged (I know because they commented about it on this very blog).

I've been trailing Douglas' career ever since on this road we call life.

Last year he started at Clear Channel radio and has good news concerning his latest gig.

Douglas is now the official afternoon (1p-9pm Mon-Fri) traffic anchor for a total of 15 radio stations in Houston and San Antonio. His stations include News Radio 740 AM KTRH, AM 950 The 9-5-0, Sports Talk 790 AM, 94.5 The Buzz, 93.7 The Arrow, Sunny 99.1, 1560 AM KGOW, 100.7 FM The Word KKHT, Business Radio KTEK 1110 AM, KNTH 1070 AM as well as KMMX, KQXT and WOAI in San Antonio.

Now obviously not even Clear Channel owns all of those station in Houston.  I'm guessing that it must contract its traffic services to other companies.

"Feels good to be on the air again," Douglas told the blog.

And I am sure many Houston commuters can once again listen to Darby and pretend they're on their own private HOV lane. OK maybe it won't be that good, but based on previous comments here, they will be happy to have him back officially.

  1. Glad to hear he's back. I quit watching Channel 11 after he left. It was terrible the way he "left."

  2. Douglas can also be heard on Clear Channel's mobile app, iHeartRadio under Houston Traffic during his shift. So you can listen to him worldwide!
