Chris recalled his early days as a night jock and the concert ticket giveaway games he’d play with visitors to his studio: “My game was I would make girls go under the console and start blowing me and they had to make me come while I’m doing the weather, or they wouldn’t get the tickets.” But now most night shifts are automated: “There’s no worry of anyone getting a night [blow] job anymore. Those days are over.”

Chris said he’d also given up on Baba Booey jokes–thanks to Gary’s book: “It really shook me. I was like, ‘I’m done.’ I’m not making fun of him anymore.”

Howard wished Chris all the best at his new job–and his next: “I can’t wait until its Project 97…one thing I know about the people of Atlanta, they will prepare you well for Houston.”
