Berry replaced the syndicated Glenn Beck Program with a weekday 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. talk show on sister station Talk Radio 950 KPRC the next year. Berry was named operations director for Clear Channel Communications’ Houston AM radio stations KTRH, KPRC, and KBME “790 the Sports Animal” on April 27, 2007. Berry held the same job until 2011. Berry started hosting a 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. show on KTRH in June 2007, in addition to his morning KPRC broadcast. In July 2007, KTRH changed Berry’s show from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. to accommodate The Sean Hannity Show and The Chris Baker Show.

On July 30, 2007, KPRC canceled Berry’s show as part of its revised “Radio Mojo” format, which replaced Walton and Johnson with Mancow’s Morning Madhouse on weekday mornings. After Baker’s show was terminated by KTRH in November 2007, Berry returned to his original hour. In 2010, KPRC’s “The 9-5-0 Radio Mojo” reintroduced Berry in the 2 to 5 p.m. slot, while KTRH shortened Berry’s 5 p.m. show by one hour to accommodate all three hours of The Mark Levin Show.
