Ch. 7 to air "Rex Ryan Show"

Stay tuned for “The Rex Ryan Show” on Channel 7.

You could have predicted this one.

Since being named the coach of the Buffalo Bills, Ryan has become a media member's dream, always ready with a good sound bite for local and national reporters. He was the same way when he coached the New York Jets.

Channel 7 General Manager Mike Nurse confirmed the program will air at 7 p.m. Saturday during the season, with a repeat episode airing at 11 a.m. Sunday before the great majority of Bills games.

The program is produced by the Bills. John Murphy, the radio play-by-play voice of the Bills and a former Channel 7 sports director, will be the host. It will make its debut on the Saturday before the Bills opener against Indianapolis on Sept. 13.

Once again, Ryan is proving to be a much different coach than his predecessor, Doug Marrone. Nurse said Marrone didn’t want to do a TV show during his two seasons as coach.
