Gabe Bock: A note to TexAgs about my transition from radio

Dear TexAgs community,

This morning, I announced on the air that I am stepping away as host of TexAgs Radio. The video clip from that segment can be seen by clicking the play button above. My last show as host will be Friday, June 11. This is a decision that has been on my mind for quite a while and something that Megan and I have prayed about for over a year. We firmly believe that this is the right move for our family of five and that the timing is right to step away from the show. It’s important to note that I’m not leaving TexAgs altogether and am very excited for my future involvement within the organization!

The plan is for me to continue to be involved and associated with TexAgs, moving into a special projects role while continuing to have a voice on the content side of the company (details forthcoming). I’ll be splitting my time between working on content projects at TexAgs and helping Megan in real estate, and I’m so excited to get started in each of these new roles!

I’m completely fired up for the man that TexAgs will soon announce as my replacement. I plan to do a weekly in-studio hit with him this fall, and I can’t wait to see where he takes the show. I’m hopeful and confident that the person replacing me (who is an Aggie, by the way) will take what’s been started over the last 10 years and help move the show — and the organization — into the stratosphere.

I want you to know what a joy it has been to be on the air with you each morning, talking Texas A&M sports together for the last 10 years. As someone who grew up dreaming of a career in sports radio, I do not take lightly how incredibly thankful I am to live in College Station and be on the air every day talking about the school that I attended and fell in love with on my first visit to Aggieland nearly 22 years ago. The goal has always been to provide you with the kind of show that is engaging and all-encompassing when it comes to connecting as a community of Aggies over the airwaves and conversing about all things Aggie sports. Many of you have become very close personal friends of mine, and I cherish all of you for believing in me and investing in me for so many years as your daily voice here in Aggieland!

The ultimate deciding factor in my transition off of TexAgs Radio simply comes down to time and margin. It’s vital that I find a way to carve out more time to help with the ever-increasing needs within my own household ... most notably, the growing involvement of our three children and supporting Megan and her rapidly-growing real estate career.

I want you to know what a joy it has been to be on the air with you each morning, talking Texas A&M sports together for the last 10 years. I cherish all of you for believing in me and investing in me for so many years as your daily voice here in Aggieland!

I look forward to continuing to “cover” A&M sports in a new and exciting way, while also gaining the margin to be able to start attending games as a fan. In fact, Megan and I have already booked a trip to Denver this September for the A&M football game against Colorado! It’ll be the first time we’ve been to a road football game together and probably the third football game we’ve watched together in our marriage of nearly 17 years.

I want to reiterate how much I enjoy working at TexAgs. It has truly meant everything to me, and I am so very thankful to you for all of your support! I’m going to miss my time with Billy, Olin, Dalton and the crew each morning, and I can’t thank the TexAgs partners (Billy, Brandon, Josh and Hunter) enough for giving me the opportunity to host TexAgs Radio 10 years ago and for entrusting me to help make it great! And a big thanks to Louie and the team at The Zone for a great partnership that will continue for many years to come. I hope you’ll remember my time on TexAgs Radio as fondly as I will remember my days talking sports with all of you and attempting to do so with integrity and class.

I honestly feel like TexAgs is still in the adolescent phase of its growth as an organization. I have often dreamed about what this company and community will look like when Texas Aggie Football elevates the program into a “Clemson-like” decade-long run of success. We all agree that A&M is in line for an era of greatness under Jimbo Fisher and that THE most exciting and successful period in Texas A&M football is still forthcoming. I firmly believe that is on the near horizon. It’s truly an honor to be a part of the initial rise of this organization and I look forward to continuing to contribute to the product in a new capacity in the future!

Gig ‘em,

Gabe Bock ‘03

Nice note, Gabe. I haven't listened too much the last few years (not for any negative reason, just haven't), but really enjoyed listening to you help create, launch, and then sustain TexAgs radio over the years.

I'm sure your dedication and hard work is appreciated by the company, but it was absolutely noticed by those locally that paid attention. The foundation of all of that was due in large part to you.

Best of luck to you and your family.

My kids are now 18 and 17 and it's starting to hit home how much time I've wasted trying to get ahead at work, instead of spending more with them. I'm having a true Cats In The Cradle moment. Good on you for having the ability and foresight to do what you feel is best for you and the fam. Best of luck in your future endeavors. You will definitely be missed

We never realized you were in the same class as our son. He would have been proud of what you've accomplished thus far. Best of luck with your future endeavors and best wishes to you and your family.
Yes, I was. And very proud to be associated with your wonderful son (Mr. Kerlee) in that way!
