Doug 'VB' Goudie

M-F 6am - 10am

VB got his start (and his unfortunate nickname) as a producer/sidekick on the Howie Carr Show on WRKO during the nineties.  After carrying Howie for  over a decade, VB parlayed that job into a television gig, and he joined the Fox 25 Morning News in Boston in 2003. (It was just a matter of time before tv came calling - just look at him.) It was on that show where VB first worked (was aggravated by) Kim Carrigan. Following his 11 year run with Fox, VB decided to return to his roots, and he has come home to WRKO, where he has rejoined forces with Kim. (Yes, he is a glutton for punishment.) Aside from that, VB continues to be a very handsome man who tries to keep his head above water while raising his three kids (who he adores) and his puppy (who he does not adore).

    So FBI director James Comey testified in front of Congress (again!) for four straight hours (he's made of stone, don't you know?), and it was a fairly revealing session.  In fact, both The New...

    So POTUS finally admitted what we all already knew, he did NOT record his personal conversation with James Comey on that fateful evening back in January. Of course he doesn't have tapes because 1. if he did and they backed up Comey, he would never have mentioned it, and 2. if he had tapes and they...

    I'm one of those guys who occasionally likes to think about what our Founding Fathers might think about certain events that in 2017. With that in mind, I whipped out my kid's Mickey Mouse Time Machine this week and invited the ghosts of George Washington, Ben Franklin, and Alexander Hamilton to...

    So Comey's out. Regardless of how we got there (Trump did the absolute right thing in firing him, he did the absolute wrong thing in explaining the firing), we must now set odds on who will be replacing Comey as the new Director of the FBI. As best I can tell, here's how it breaks down, and here's...
