Ken Hoffman returns to 1560 The Game KGOW

I was happy to see that Houston Chronicle columnist Ken Hoffman is returning to 1560 The Game KGOW. He announced the big news in his column:

Proving that I never learn, I am returning to radio station KGOW-AM (1560 "The Game"). Starting next week, I will co-host a show every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to noon with fellow Houston Chronicle columnist Richard Justice. He thinks the name of the show should be The Richard Justice Show. We'll let him keep thinking that.

I've already scheduled an appointment with a chiropractor. I know my back is going to hurt carrying him.
I was on KGOW for almost three years, between 2008 and 2010. Obviously it ended badly, but the dream of one day joining Russ "The Weird Beard" Knight, Ken "Hub Cap" Carter and the Light Crust Doughboys in the Texas Radio Hall of Fame is bringing me back.

How will I explain my absence this past year? I'm going to say I committed a crime in Florida, and I was sitting in jail, when all of a sudden a jury found me not guilty …

If I ever got a chance to host a talk radio show, Hoffman is one of the people I would want to co-host with.
