Pauly Howard and Mitch Moss
Pauly Howard worked in radio for 18 years after getting his start at KFAN in Minneapolis. A native of St. Cloud, Minn., he graduated from St. Cloud State. He moved to Las Vegas in 2000 after landing a job at Sports Fan Radio Network with JT The Brick, Chad Andrus, Brandon Tierney and others. Things took off from there. He moved to ESPN Las Vegas to do afternoon drive with Mitch Moss, and the station would go on to become the No. 3-rated sports station in the nation at the time. Howard shifted to Fox Sports Las Vegas and soon began doing national work for Fox Sports Radio in over 250 markets. Howard and Moss are reunited on VSiN, co-hosting “Follow the Money” from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. ET weekdays. Howard’s odds and ends ... Favorite movies: The Godfather and The Godfather Part II, Reservoir Dogs, The Big Short, Shawshank Redemption Favorite actress: Rosamund Pike Favorite TV show: Game of Thrones Favorite bands: Metallica and Led Zeppelin The sports broadcasters I most admire are Brent Musburger and Howard Cosell. I got into the business because of Cosell and Musburger. Cosell hated the jockocracy and former players getting the top jobs with no experience, and I loved his view on that. My favorite team is whoever I bet on. The best athlete I've seen play in person is Randy Moss, the most gifted wide receiver ever. My worst betting beat was on the Ohio State-Northwestern game in 2013. The Buckeyes recovered a fumbled lateral for a TD on the last play of the game. Northwestern, a 6½-point underdog, lost 40-30. My best and biggest bet was on Floyd Mayweather Jr. over Canelo Alvarez in 2013. On my first day in Vegas, I watched spin after spin as red came up 21 times in a row on roulette.
Mitch is originally from the small town Fall Creek, Wisconsin, where there isn't a stop light or a fast food restaurant to be found. He made the move to VSiN after his second stint at ESPN Radio in Las Vegas. The first stint at the Lotus Broadcasting station lasted from 2001 until late 2011. He produced, hosted and was the program director throughout this duration. He then moved to 95.7 The Game (KGMZ) in San Francisco to produce the midday, and eventually the morning show at the station. In March 2013, he made the move back to Las Vegas as midday host. He also was the play-by-play voice of the Las Vegas Locos of the now-defunct United Football League, and also called games for the Mountain West Radio Network for many years. In his words ... “I first visited Las Vegas in the summer of 1998. The best man at my wedding was stationed at Nellis Air Force base. The visit lasted 12 days. I knew within the first couple of days during my trip that I was going to move to Las Vegas. It didn't matter if I had a job or not, I was going to move here.” “I first recall being around gambling when I was an extremely young kid. Everybody had these tickets with two numbers on them around bowl time. I was also in elementary or middle school when my older brother was running the March Madness pool contest. I thought it was great because his high school principal was involved!” “The best gambling experience of my life was winning the 2006 Last Man Standing along with my colleague, Doug Marsh. It was a Texas Station-only football contest back then. The following year it blew up and was at every Station Casino in the city. Marsh and I split a little more than $17,600. When it blew up, the prize pool increased to more than $80,000.” “My wife and I live with our two dogs, Dexter and Mickey. My family still lives in Wisconsin.”
