Best Sports Talk Host Houston 2009 - Charlie Pallilo, 790 AM The Sports Animal

We sometimes get some grief for our sports-radio picks: Our Best Show is one that features a lot of raucous humor; our Best Host leans more toward stat-heavy analysis. But Charlie Pallilo offers real insight along with his seeming ability to come up with every ERA since 1935 at the drop of a hat. He utterly respects the callers, and never insults the intelligence of his audience. In the land of sports-talk radio, where some hosts seem to think their job is to out-macho everybody, that's a welcome relief. Pallilo is also known for his ability to eat prodigious amounts of food without adding to his wiry frame, but we won't hold that against him.

Charlie is a sports historian, sound mind, and sets the record straight. He rocks!!

Charlie P is one of the most skilled speakers I've ever heard. He does a 4 hour show using nothing by metaphors.

I respect Charlie but as a sports fan and sports radio listener he is just too dry for my taste. I like my sports host to be able to inject some humor from time to time and I just don't have that with Charlie. I judge my host by asking myself if it would be good to have a beer with this guy and talk sports. With John & Lance it is a yes and with Charlie it is a no.
