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.
