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).
