The Jimmy Barrett Show
Jimmy Barrett comes to KPRC via Detroit, Mich., and Richmond, Va. where he spent several decades doing mornings. Jimmy was also the longtime public address announcer for Michigan Men's Basketball and the Detroit Tigers. He loves sports and is excited to now be able to root for the Astros, Texans and Rockets. "There aren't a lot of places like Houston," he says, "and we are very excited to be here. You can't choose where you're born, but you can choose where you want to live. We choose to call Texas home." Jimmy and his wife, Elisabeth, have several cats and a South Korean rescue dog named Swiper.
