NFL VETERAN SETH PAYNE NAMED THE NEW CO-HOST OF MAD RADIO ON SPORTSRADIO 610
Ten year NFL Veteran and original Texan Seth Payne has been hired as the new co-host of Houston’s top-rated sports radio midday show “Mad Radio”. Payne replaces Brad Davies who will remain with the station on a part-time fill-in basis.
Program Director Gavin Spittle says on the move, “I can’t thank Brad enough for being a part of Mad Radio. In one year, we have seen a 100% increase in this time slot and while we will miss him on a daily basis, I’m glad that he wants to remain on the team in a part-time capacity. Seth is a natural fit and from day one, he’s impressed us. We’re really excited about the all-new Mad Radio”.
Payne added, “I'm grateful to Gavin Spittle for this opportunity, and I appreciate all the guidance I've received from him and the talented people at SportsRadio 610. I especially look forward to working with Mike Meltser. He is an extremely talented and intelligent individual, and I know we'll have a lot of fun.”
Payne played 10 years in the NFL, five with the Houston Texans, including the game-winning and first- ever safety in Texans history in a 19-10 upset over the Dallas Cowboys in the 2002 franchise regular season debut.
Payne will begin his co-hosting duties this Monday at 10a.
