“Everyone in the Greater Houston area is a friend of mine, and I’m excited that this podcast will allow me to greet them on the airwaves once again,” said Dave Ward. “I still have many stories to share with the community, and by partnering with Sonic Automotive, we’re providing listeners with the opportunity to hear from me and my guests in a new format.”

In 2019, Ward released his memoir entitled, “Good Evening, Friends: A Broadcaster Shares His Life,” in which he outlines his journey to becoming one of Houston’s most iconic television personalities.

Ward hopes that with the launch of his new podcast, he will also bring words from the pages of his biography to the ears of his many friends throughout Houston.
