Houston media sports moves

Looks like the Houston sports media scene is getting some changes...from TV, newspaper and radio.

KPRC 2 MMJ Gary Striewski moves to the station's sports department according to Twitter chatter. Messages of congratulations from Striewski's colleagues about his going to the sports department gave the move away. He came to Houston from KGWN 5 in Cheyenne, Wyoming last May. KPRC 2 sports guy Adam Clanton left the station in August to host a show on 1560 KGOW with John Wessling.

Speaking of KPRC sports...the NBC affiliate lost two sports photographers to the new Comcast Sportsnet Houston channel. Both Allen Reid and Daryl George are now NBC dudes and still getting to shoot Houston sports.

Houston Chronicle baseball writer Zachary Levine announced on twitter he is moving on, "Don't know where I'm headed next, but I'll keep tweeting and keep you posted." Chronicle sports editor Nick Mathews added, "To Mr. @zacharylevine, as your editor and a reader, I thank you most sincerely for your amazing work at @HoustonChron. You will be missed."

MLB.com is reporting that Houston Astros announcers Brett Dolan and Dave Raymond, who along with Milo Hamilton, have called games for the last seven years are out. Brian McTaggart writes the duo's contracts were not renewed so the team will have a totally brand new broadcasting team for 2013.

  2. Glad to see Clanton go. Terrible narcissist just like that old botoxed dye job who self promoted her marriage all spring in the media.
