Jack Chambers, the host of the "Houston and Beyond" radio show, is a devoted Baylor Bear. He bleeds green & gold.
Jack attended Baylor University (1977-81), where he started out as a Music Education major, and then switched to Communications. He often talks about Baylor on his radio show, especially when there is any Houston connection. And he occasionally features interviews with guests from Baylor.
Jack and his father, Bob Chambers (BU '57) were the ones who came up with the idea for a major tradition at Baylor: the lighting of Pat Neff tower in green, after significant BU athletic victories. While Jack was sophomore class president (1978-79), he led his class to raise the money for the green floodlights, which are still used today.

Many of Jack's family members have connections with Houston and with Baylor. For example, Jack's mother, Lois Rutledge Chambers, graduated from Milby High School in Houston and then attended Baylor (Class of '58.) Altogether, including Jack, 17 people in his family (his parents, all 4 of his siblings, 3 of his siblings' spouses, and several other relatives, some of whom currently live in the Houston area) attended Baylor. Most of them completed one or more degrees there, including several who went on to graduate from Baylor Law School.
