Before Friday morning’s show, 93.7 The Fan host Colin Dunlap caught and confronted a would-be burglar in the parking lot before the show began.

After admitting he goes the wrong way through an exit only lane to get to the parking garage because its faster and its early in the morning, Dunlap noticed someone near producer Adam Crowley’s car.

“It’s probably 100 feet before I turn to where his car is parked and the car is parked as I turn, my lights flash on the broad side — the passenger side — of it and he parked going crossways. I noticed — what I first think is Crowley — on the passenger side. It’s not,” said Dunlap. “It’s some man. Looking into Crowley’s passenger side window. I normally park two spots away from Crowley and I back in. As I pull down, it still doesn’t hit the guy that a car is coming towards him. I make it about halfway down and the guy pops up and looks over his shoulder and notices this car coming. Immediately, he walks off real fast and goes up these steps to another parking lot above ours.”

Dunlap then made a lap around the parking lot before returning to his normal parking spot, while waiting inside to see if the person also returned.

“Two minutes later, here comes the guy circling back the other way, looks into (93.7 The Fan producer) Greg Finley’s car, which is parked in a different part of the lot. Pulls the handle. It doesn’t open. Then he walks back towards Crowley’s car towards the drivers side. He doesn’t see me in my car. At this point, I got out of my car and I said ‘Listen, it’s gonna happen one way or the other. Either I’m gonna grab you and knock you the hell out or you’re gonna get the eff out of here’. Cause I knew what was happening here. And I start walking towards him. And I’m five, maybe 10 feet from the guy, and boom. Sprint. Dude takes off.”

Dunlap then said he called 911 and reported the incident, noting two-minutes later three police officers were on the scene.

“I was still on the phone with 911 longer than it took them to get there,” Dunlap said. He added the man was a “junkie looking guy” who he didn’t fear was armed or dangerous.

WQAM midday host Jonathan Zaslow is no longer with WQAM in Miami.

The radio station has removed his show from the website and references to him and his normal 10a-2p ET midday timeslot program have been scrubbed from the station website.

Zaslow tweeted at 5:19p ET confirming the news.

Whether or not this has any effect on his involvement with the Miami Heat broadcasts is unknown as of now.

Barry Jackson, a veteran journalist with the Miami Herald, reports that 790 The Ticket morning hosts Brendan Tobin and Leroy Hoard will move to that 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. WQAM slot during the week of Oct. 3.

In more station movement, Joe Rose’s WQAM morning show with Zach Krantz now will be simulcast on The Ticket, replacing the Tobin/Hoard program. Audacy, which owns both WQAM and The Ticket, also simulcast Marc Hochman’s and Channing Crowder’s afternoon show.

Zaslow had been with 790 the Ticket since 2004. He was transitioned from Audacy-owned 790 to sister station AM 560 Sports WQAM last October. During his tenure he has worked with a number of established local voices including Joy Taylor, Amber Wilson, Brett Romberg, and Brendan Tobin amongst others.

WQAM has gone thru a number of changes, including a rebranding effort to call the station “560 The Joe”. That ended last year with the station returning to the AM 560 Sports WQAM brand listeners were more familiar with. What they have planned next in Zaslow’s timeslot is unclear but local listeners will likely get some answers next week.

Vanessa and Gallant

Changes are taking place in Houston sports media. First, the Houston Rockets will have a new television sideline reporter this season, and she’s a familiar name to Houston sports fans.

Vanessa Richardson, the now former co-host of ESPN 97.5’s Vanessa and Gallant, revealed that she will be on the sidelines for the NBA franchise covering the team for AT&T SportsNet Southwest.

She tweeted the news saying, “Elated to be the new Houston Rockets sideline reporter! I can’t wait to travel the country & share the stories of this dynamic team during 80+ games on AT&T SportsNet Southwest. I’ll continue to fill-in as a host/reporter for Astros broadcasts as well.”

Richardson’s co-host, Paul Gallant, tweeted that with Richardson leaving the show for the Rockets sideline gig, Vanessa and Gallant will become the Paul Gallant Show. The solo show led by Gallant begins Monday September 26th.

“We’re excited to have Paul host his own show”, said Todd Farquharson, General Manager of ESPN 97.5 & 92.5.  “He’s super creative, energetic, and likeable.  He’ll get the audience involved and have fun.”

Paul commented, “You know what I’ve always loved about sports talk radio?  That it’s interactive.  Whether through a phone call, text message, tweet or on Twitch, it’s the best place for sports fans to come together and celebrate…or vent.  And that’s what The Paul Gallant Show is going to be…Houston’s platform to talk about its teams. THE most interactive sports talk show in Houston.”

Ken Carman: Al Michaels ‘Feels Untethered’ On Amazon Prime Video

The Cleveland Browns defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers during Thursday Night Football on Amazon Prime Video. 92.3 The Fan morning host Ken Carman applauded Al Michaels for his performance during the presentation.

“Al Michaels feels untethered for the first time. He’s not network television anymore and he can say whatever he wants. We interviewed him on the pregame show and I was nervous,” Carman said.

“He’s a legend,” co-host Anthony Lima added.

During the final play of the game, the Steelers fumbled a lateral into the endzone which the Browns recovered to make the final score 29-17. Michaels said “that may be meaningful to some of you. And you know who I mean”, alluding to people who had placed wagers on the game.

Carman, who hosts two-hours of pre-game coverage on the Browns Radio Network, continued to discuss how nervous he was interviewing Michaels. He also discussed how impressive Amazon’s behind-the-scenes production was, pointing out the only football broadcast with more cameras is the Super Bowl. More than 400 people work behind the scenes for Amazon Prime Video.

“The thing that stuck out was Kirk Herbstreit ripping the elf,” said Carman. “Don’t be ripping Brownie the Elf, man.”

Carman later said people angry that Michaels misspoke by saying the Pro Football Hall of Fame is “down I-71” instead of I-77 were unreasonable, and joked “Al Michaels hasn’t been on a highway in 20 years”.
