Jackson, Wexler out at KBME in day-long lineup shift that adds syndicated Jay Mohr show at midday
Houston Chronicle - over 3 years
Adam Wexler and Matt Jackson, who have co-hosted KBME‘s (790 AM) morning talk show since 2009, have been dismissed by the Clear Channel-owned station and will be replaced in morning drive by Lance Zierlein and Adam Clanton.
The change, which was announced by Bryan Erickson, Clear Channel Houston’s director of AM programming, in a memo to advertisers, is effective Monday and is part of a drastic shift in the station’s weekday lineup.
The most drastic change, aside from the dismissal of Wexler and Jackson, is the insertion of Jay Mohr’s syndicated Fox Sports Radio show from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., breaking up what had been an all-local lineup from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Zierlein, who most recently has worked afternoon drive with Charlie Pallilo, worked mornings with Wexler and Jackson from August 2011 through September 2012, will now be paired in the morning with Clanton, the former KPRC (Channel 2) and KILT (610 AM) host who joined the station in March to work an evening shift.
