"Skin" adds nothing to the broadcast. He is terrible. Bob Ortegal is the only reason I listen. He's the only one who knows what he is talking about. You don't need constant talk while you're trying to watch a game.

Both of them suck in my opinion. The entire broadcast on TXA 21 is horrible. The problem that TXA 21 has can be found in any local sports broadcasting entity in this town....they are all homers. Another thing...
In order for any black broadcaster or journalist to get a gig in this town must be a former athlete otherwise you won't get a shot like the white broadcasters do!

Followill and Ortegel do no need any help. They do fine. The new guy is an odd distraction and an annoyance. Get rid of him before people start watching the broadcast on another station.
