Who we are & what we do
Who we are & what we do
We are based in Victoria, Texas, but that doesn't stop us from talking about whatever is happening in the nation, worldwide or locally!!
Wade and Carter grew up thousands of miles apart, Ash in Canada and Brent here, in Victoria. Both played lots of sports and are still sports junkies today. Work led to a friendship and personal relationship each has with few others. Their lunches became sounding sessions where many of the world's problems were solved over a plate of Tex-Mex and glass of 'half and half' tea.
Carter developed a slightly demented following hammering local media for it's inconsistencies and inaccuracies and folks started saying, "Why don't you two get a radio show?". Little did they know that had been discussed for over a year and, almost literally overnight, it came into being.
With Founding Sponsors VeraCruz Restaurant, Wendt Electrical, CivilCorp/The Office, and Empire Lodge, along with folks who don't really want to be associated with these two but like the concept, the show is on the air!
Wade and Carter each have 'day jobs' and are doing this for fun and to give back to Victoria. The format has been missing and there's lots to discuss here in Big V. Here's hoping you enjoy their banter and feel like you've simply joined them for lunch!!
We are a team of dedicated professionals, ready to talk about whatever!
News. Sports. Gardening.
Whatever is on your mind - we want your questions!
