740 KTRH & its news director part ways

Thursday I posted how Sportstalk 790 KBME morning team man Lance Zierlein was moving to afternoons with Charlie Pallilo.

But that's not the only change to Clear Channel's Houston AM stations.

Got word this morning from multiple sources that NewsRadio 740 KTRH News Director and Assistant Program Director, Roger Hudson, is no longer with the news/talk station as of today.

I've reached out to Clear Channel this morning but have not heard back. I just found a way to contact Hudson and will let you know if he gets back with me.

Hudson's bio and photo have been removed from ktrh.com's bio page.

That page used to say that Hudson manages the KTRH newsroom/staff and, "in addition to picking the stories covered, he's also executive producer of Houston's Morning News."

I understand Hudson worked for the station around five years.

  3. This isn't at all a bad thing. Roger was a bit of a primadona and much preferred talking the talk to walking the walk.

    2. He did. He had that "Golden Voice" and was a natural as a talk host. Whoever it is here that keeps posting negative comments about him obviously has a hard on for him must work for KTRH.

    3. Whoever is posting here who thinks he was good on the air is probably him.

    4. I want to believe this is actually Roger posting about himself, but the man can only spell two letter words, so most likely it's someone else, or maybe someone writing it for him.

      Boo hoo, Rog. Boo hoo. One down, three to go. Next one to go - Erickson.

  7. He was one of the worst things to happen to KTRH in a long time. Completely incompetent and when he was on the air it became the stutter and stammer show. Treated his people like dirt, I hope he doesnt find employment anywhere else. God help the next news room he lands in.
