KCOH's sports director and Sports Rap host Ralph Cooper is a Houston institution. In 2010, the Houston Association of Black Journalists honored his 40 years in print and broadcast media with a lifetime achievement award, recognizing his work in the late 1960s for the Forward Times and Houston Post, on through his sports coverage for KYOK, KCOH, the Houston Defender, KTRK and many other outlets. Cooper was there for Muhammad Ali's Astrodome bouts, and his "Rumble in the Jungle" against George Foreman. According to the KCOH website, Cooper has interviewed Satchel Paige, Roberto Clemente and Wilt Chamberlain, just to name a very, very few. He's also a huge supporter of local high school and college athletes. But here's the thing: You don't have to know the difference between a pigskin and a softball to enjoy Sports Rap. Listening to Cooper's avuncular tone and delivery, matched with a quick wit, you'll soak up some real Houston history. The man is a local treasure.
