Marc Vandermeer (@TexansVoice) has been a team fixture since it began play in 2002, calling every snap the Houston Texans have ever taken as the team’s play-by-play announcer. Vandermeer officially joined the Texans as the director of radio broadcasting in June 2012 and was promoted to senior director of broadcasting in June 2013 before being named vice president of broadcasting in 2016. In his role, Vandermeer serves as the “Voice of the Texans” and oversees the programs and content on HoustonTexans.com, Texans Radio on the flagship station KILT SportsRadio 610 AM and Texans television programming on ABC-13/KTRK and Fox Sports Southwest. Since the Texans began play, Vandermeer is the only current team employee to attend every single game in franchise history.
Joining Vandermeer in the booth for game broadcasts is Heisman Trophy winner Andre Ware. Ware, a native Houstonian, played his college football at the University of Houston before becoming a first-round draft pick of the Detroit Lions. After his football career, Ware made the jump into the broadcast booth as color commentator for the Houston Cougars. He also currently serves as an analyst for college football games on ESPN. Ware was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2004.
John Harris (@jharrisfootball) joined the organization as a football analyst and sideline reporter in April 2014 and was hired full-time in April 2015. In addition to his sideline duties on game day, he writes articles for HoustonTexans.com and contributes to Texans Radio and Texans TV on a regular basis. Harris has spent his time around the game as a coach’s son, player, coach, writer, radio host, television guest and all-around football historian. He provides a perspective not many can - a thorough understanding of X’s and O’s with the ability to communicate that love and understanding to readers and listeners.
