In addition to his Program Director responsibilities, Lance will be the on-air mid-day host from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on 101.7 The Bull.

For the past year and a half, Houston has been the Program Director at Country WPOC/Baltimore. Prior to that, he spent six years as Assistant Program Director and PM Drive personality at Country WUBL/Atlanta. Houston began his Country music radio career in 1995 at CCM+E’s WTXT/Tuscaloosa, AL. His past experience includes roles as Program Director of WBAM/Montgomery, AL & WYGC/Gainesville, FL

“101.7 The Bull has found its visionary! Lance is that perfect combination of a great programming strategist, incredible musicologist and successful on-air talent,” said Dylan Sprague, Vice President of Programming for Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Boston. “His vision, creativity, positive attitude and energy make him the perfect choice to lead our new station.”

“I am excited to be back riding the Bull," said Houston. “I’m ready to lead the team in Boston into a battle, much like we did successfully in Atlanta. America’s greatest city deserves a young and hip Country station.”
