Robert J Wright

I was born near here, actually, in the little east Texas town of Palestine. My Dad was in sales, so before moving to Shreveport when I was in high school (Jesuit HS) we lived in cities all over the South, sort of a preparation for my broadcasting career. I got into radio after a couple years of college, I've lived in 15 different places and have been fired nine times - including twice in one day from two different stations. I finally wised up and came back here in '96, teaming up with morning show partner Erin (McCarty) on the old Big Dog 94.5, moved one door down the hall to 96.5 KVKI in 2003, and now, the best job ever, mornings on 710 KEEL !

Real Names of the Stars

One of the first things listeners ask Erin and me is, 'Is that your real name?' And sometimes they seem disappointed to find out that Erin McCarty and Robert Wright are the ones we were born with. I have, through the years, worked with a number of deejays who used 'air names', the most memorable being 'Jason O'Brien' (real name Howard Toole) and 'Gary Burbank' (Eugene Purser). And with some of show business' biggest 'names' it's no different.

Who Decided ‘When Is Easter’?

When I was a kid, the two biggest holidays were Christmas and Easter. Christmas? Well, that was easy to remember. December 25, each and every year, no matter what. But Easter? Sometimes it's in March and other times in April. But who decides? And whoever it is who makes the decision (my Mother told me it was the week before the Pope took his vacation), why do they keep moving it around?

Eat Your Heart Out, Sofia Vergara — I Can Freeze My Eggs, Too!

When Erin and I heard this morning that 40-year-old "Modern Family" star Sofia Vergara had frozen her eggs for possible future pregnancies, we were a little shocked. Removing and storing ova for future use is apparently not all that uncommon, so I decided to get in on the fun. That's right: I've decided to freeze my eggs.

Check out some pictures of the surprisingly simple and cheap procedure.

Easter Peeps In the Microwave: Do Not Try This At Home

Erin and I love everything about Easter: The religious significance, families together, the beginning of spring. And, of course, our own 'Easter On the Bayou' celebration Saturday at Cypress Black Bayou Recreation Area. Hold it! There is one thing about Easter that Erin despises: Marshmallow peeps!

Just In Case You’re the Only One Who Hasn’t Seen the ‘Devil Looks Like Obama’ Photos

So, I'm at lunch with my brother and some other friends today, and the topic of The History Channel's hit series 'The Bible' comes up. And, of course, you can't talk about 'The Bible' without bringing up the latest controversy du jour, the similarities between the devil and President Barack Obama.

You Can Sound Irish Like Bono or Daniel Day-Lewis

Erin McCarty's Irish accent sounds, according to one caller, 'like the Queen of England with marbles in her mouth.' Well, in Ms. McCarty's defense, the dialect of the Emerald Isle is, according to linguists, one of the most difficult to perfect.
