More than 200 fans, sponsors and dignitaries packed House of Blues Monday night to commemorate the new partnership between the Houston Dynamo and GOW Media. Last week, the two entities announced they would be joining forces to make Yahoo! Sports Radio 1560 AM and ESPN 97.5 the new radio home for Dynamo soccer.
The event began with Afternoon Delight hosts Adam Clanton and John Wessling broadcasting their show live from House of Blues. The radio hosts chatted with Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear and first round draft pick Jason Johnson, among others. Listen to their interview with Kinnear:
The event continued with a special presentation, as each radio host from GOW Media was presented with a personalized Dynamo jersey from head coach Dominic Kinnear, team president Chris Canetti and the Dynamo Girls.
As part of the new agreement, Dynamo All-Access with Glenn Davis will air on 1560 AM or ESPN 97.5 every Monday from 7-9 p.m. CT. Davis hosted his first All-Access show under the new partnership last night. All-Access featured interviews with Kinnear, Dynamo defenders Corey Ashe and Bobby Boswell and Dynamo midfielder Ricardo Clark. (We'll post the link to the podcast as soon as it's online).
Thank you to all the fans that came out to celebrate this new partnership. Here are a few reactions from the Twitterverse about last night's event:
