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 90s. 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 with (and 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 (whom he adores) and his puppy (whom he does not adore).

    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...
