Fernando & Greg In The Morning
Weekdays 6:00 AM – 10:00 AM
As one part of the Fernando and Greg Show, I feel like I am living out my Big Gay American Dream in the Bay Area. I grew up in Watauga, Texas a suburb of Fort Worth. And I can tell you that as a gay boy growing up in Watauga, all I wanted to do was get out of there and get to somewhere I didn’t have to wear starched Wranglers and drive a Dooly Pick Up Truck.
After 10 years in promotions and marketing at radio stations in Austin, San Antonio and Dallas, I first hit the Bay Area airwaves in March 2005 as a call-in guest from Dallas to the new morning show of long-time friend Fernando. Three weeks later I sold everything that wouldn’t fit in to my car and drove from Texas to San Francisco to make my mark as Greg the Gay Sportscaster.
In addition to the Fernando and Greg Show, I have been a member of Team in Training raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society since 2007 and have completed several marathons and half marathons. I’ve also tried my hand at stand up comedy and hope to get more experience on the big stage with the little mic.
And of course, I am a passionate sports fan of all my Texas teams. Although I gladly left Texas for Nor Cal, I couldn’t leave my love for Texas sports teams behind. I am a graduate of The University of Texas and am a diehard Longhorns, Cowboys, Mavericks and Rangers fan. But I have taken a liking to the Giants since moving to the Bay Area and hope one day to get a little private time in the clubhouse with Andres Torres and Jonathan Sanchez.

Now there’s a study that confirms what people who live in San Francisco already know: it’s really cozy here.
